Lake Michigan College Reviews

Coming from such a small high school, one of the biggest things I value about Lake Michigan College is the fact that, although offering somewhat of a typical "college" experience, it also has small classes with teachers that listen to you and work individually with each student. I have had a lot of great experiences at this college, and met tons of great friends. In addition, if you work hard, and get a great GPA and are involved in a lot of extracurriculars (which LMC does have) you can definitely transfer to a great school. I was recently accepted to the University of Michigan as a transfer student, which was my dream school in high school; after a short break spent at this great community college I was able to achieve my dream of attending it.
Review Lake Michigan College
One of the most incredible things I think that comes out of the CS program at Lake Michigan College, is how closely the faculty work with you. I know students who - simply after completing their first three programming classes - were accepted into internships paying upwards of $25 an hour. And the reason they got those scholarships was from the recommendation of the staff - they really do work closely with students and help them to ensure that they succeed.
I was afraid at first, that if I attended this community college that I wouldn't be a part of a challenging curriculum, or that I wouldn't be prepared for university-level academics. However, all of the classes I have taken have been equally challenging as the classes that fellow friends have taken at other larger universities, so I definitely think that my courses have prepared me for transferring
