I am from San Antonio, Texas, and I have never been to Michigan before. On a very last second decision, I decided to come to Lake Michigan College and start a new journey for my academic career. This is my 3rd year here and I am currently in the Radiologic Technologist program. Thanks to the amazing staff I am here because of them. When I say a last-minute decision, I mean only 2 weeks to apply and prepare to move up here. They were very helpful with the process of everything and rushed to make sure I was able to make it on time and not have to wait another semester to come here. The professors here are so great, I’ve never once had a problem with any of them and have enjoyed my classes very much. It’s beautiful here also and have lots of activities and stuff to do. Also 10 minutes from the lake is great also! Only complaint here is the snow and financial aid advisers, but other than that I love it here!

My time at LMC was great! I went right after high school for a year, and then I completed my Associates Degree in Psychology 8 years later. Some of the professors are wonderful. The classes are smaller, allowing for a more personal experience, but not so small that it's weird. The campus is really nice too as long as you're careful not to step in the goose poop in the spring. :]
As a current and upcoming graduate, I reflect on my experience at Lake Michigan College as being good. As a member of the Honors Program at the school, I have a bias in that everyone should try to be involved in said program. Though there are many other programs and clubs available that offer a lot, honors is pretty awesome. As the school overall, cost is definitely low as financial aid offers a lot as well as the countless scholarships available (that many people don't take advantage of). They also offer a lot of opportunities in the Student Life center such as internships, jobs, volunteer opportunities and free tickets to events in the Mendel Center, such as a recent one featuring Joe Biden.
