Lake Land College was a great experience for me both academically and personally. I decided to attend Lake Land for two reasons, to play baseball and their automotive technology program. It was difficult to manage these two areas as my major is very much hands on in the classroom, however the professors did a good job at helping me maintain the balance. Everyone at Lake Land is very kind and willing to help. The size of the classes are wonderful; allows for much individualized assistance when needed as well as accountability. Lake Land is 4 1/2 hours away from home, which allowed me to learn to be even more independent. I highly recommend Lake Land College!

Amazing college experience here! Overall, an excellent school with dedicated instructors who truly want to see you succeed both in the class and in your chosen career field. Lake Land College was the perfect fit for me to begin my college education after high school and gave me a strong foundation to improve on my academic studies and athletic potential. The sports teams here are outstanding and have a close-knit connection between all the athletes. Campus is easy to navigate around and the classrooms are ideal for staying focused and getting your work done. I promise if you choose to attend this school, you will not be disappointed.
Lake Land College is honestly such a peaceful, yet a very active campus . The other students are very welcoming and kind and the teaches treat all of the student led the exact same! The teachs here are just great! And to be honest this college is not at all costly! You have the opportunity to apply for the foundation scholarship, financial aid. There is free parking, free use to the workout center as long as you are a member, free book rental. Lake Land offers tutoring from other students and teachers, and not only that but class sizes are not huge so the student and teacher interaction is great. And if you are wanting to join a club Lake Land College for sure has the club for you, and if you are looking to do Volunteer work Lake Land College does that as well!
