The dorms get 2 stars due to the terrible experience I had. Noise complaints are ignored and staff doesn't care. Event coordinators, student life staff, and housing faculty are incompetent and rude. Most of the RAs are incompetent and can't do their jobs. Very few people can answer questions--it's a lot of "go ask that person, not me." There is not a "students matter" vibe at all. On the flip side, the dorms look nice. The campus is well maintained. And all the professors I've had are wonderful. Professor Keeler is phenomenal--he truly wants you to succeed. I've had a great experience at LMC solely based on the professors and those at the one-stop. Otherwise, my experience has been well below average.

I love that there is so much diversity here. I have met people from Brazil, China and a few other places as well as people who lived an hour away from me my whole life. The professor's that I have are all very helpful when I have questions. The dorms are another thing that I really like. They are more of an apartment style with each person having their own room and having our own kitchen and washer and dryer right in our room so we dint have to go to a laundromat or laundry room somewhere. The health sciences academic advisor is also so great. He knows of all of the health programs so well and makes sure that you are taking the right classes to get into your program, puts you on a great track to get there, and doesn't have you take fluff classes just because. It also has such a homey feeling because the student body is pretty small and so is the campus which is awesome if you're like me and don't like large schools.
Lake Michigan college is a great community of friendly people who are willing to help out, work hard, and play hard when work is done. Lake Michigan College has a very relaxing environment, it's right be lake Michigan so when the whether is nice its not far to the beach. The Hawks Nest is a cool place to hang out on campus, there are lots of people and things to do. There are activities like ping pong and air hockey, and there are also tv's to watch and comfortable seating for relaxing on. I love being a student at Lake Michigan College, the teacher are all super nice and willing to help out. They also care about us, the students, as people and as individuals there willing to go the extra mile to help us. The small class sizes make for a close student body, and a friendly and supportive environment.
