Lakeland University Reviews

336 reviews
All Categories
Lakeland College is located in the middle of a corn field which is the equivalent to how exciting life here is. The campus is small and gradually being updated. There is nothing to do or places to go, however. If you want food, you have to drive at least 15 minutes into Sheboygan or Plymouth. Lakeland does have a pretty diverse population in regards hometowns and race. However, everyone seems to be an athlete and walk-ons are rare. The aviation and art programs are dieing while the rest of the school consists of business or science majors. The teachers can be really helpful if you develop a relationship with them. Otherwise, it can be hit or miss on interactions with students. The Greeks would often be the hosts of campus parties, but Lakeland has tried to abolish partying on campus which doesn't allow for much socialization opportunities anymore. The housing and RA management and maintenance on campus has also become drastically sub par.

I love the professors and academics here! Sometimes I do wish the social life here will be more diverse. As of now, Lakeland is renovating our Campus center and its exciting! We just got a new football field and it really makes a difference to the campus. Something I wished they can really work on are the dormity and space. Such as also considering renovating it. But of course during the summer.
My overall experience at Lakeland has been an adventure and a half. The teachers and faculty are always willing to lend an ear and a hand when you find the right people and pursue the help you know you need.
The opportunities through and at Lakeland are many and I love to explore what's available to me as there seem to be more options popping up every day. But, again, you need to seek them out. The faculty will be willing to present you with what kind of opportunities are available to you, but you have to be the one to pursue them and find out which one is right for you.
You also need to keep an eye on is your finances. They won’t pursue you, you need to pursue them periodically in person to see if anything is amiss. Technology is temperamental in ways they might not even be aware of.
Another thing I love is their willingness to just talk with you as a person. If you are just looking for a person to talk to and chat with, then they are more than willing if they have the time.
