Academics: Depends on your professor. Some are hard, others are a walk in the park. Just attend class

Cafe: Not so good, you mostly eat the same things each week, but its cheap. Around 1k a semester

Housing: It's decent. Had to deal with mold issues, but they are currently fixing those issues. Dirt cheap as well. around 2k a semester. There's also visitation. Normally from 4pm til 11pm.

Library: Typically open from 8am til 10pm.

Parties: Events are okay..nothing too big of a deal

Sports: The school lack spirit, except for homecoming. Everyone is turned up then.

Band: A growing program. Come be apart of the Quiet Storm Marching Band. Everyone treats you like family.

Overall, It's a good school. I believe if you have a 3.0 plus straight out of high school you will receive a presidential scholarship of 5,000 per semester. College life here is what you make it. If you're lame..your experience will be lame.

Everyone greets you.

..and oh. FREE WIFI lol

Lane College makes you feel like you are home at times, plus if you live in Memphis your literally an hour away from home,(if not caught in the rush hour). Some may say it is just another high school, but to me it feels like a college that handles there business and what to their students succeed at all times. If you do not apply yourself everyday, then Lane is not for you and you are wasting your money and time as well.
I'm in my first year at Lane and so far my experience has been pretty good. Two of my three professors are wonderful, one of my professors is struggling to teach the class. The rest of the staff at Lane have been very helpful in dealing with the problem professor- which makes me feel confident that things are going to work out for the best.
