Lane Community College Reviews
I have had a great experience at Lane. It's my second year there, and I've done a lot more than I would have ever thought possible. I can mostly endorse the theatre arts side of the college because my major is acting. However, I have taken many prerequisites as well, and I can tell you that there are so many teachers who are excited to teach you their subject, whether it's math or computer programming, writing or theatre. If you don't know your major just now, that's okay! Lane offers every prerequisite that you can take at a four-year college, without the pressure or expense. I highly recommend coming to Lane.
My general classes at Lane were great- the teachers were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. The campus is very nice overall, it seems they are regularly expanding and updating buildings. It has a nice community feel and lots of friendly students and staff. However, the age range is more in the 25-35 range so I felt a little out of place going straight from high school. I think my favorite aspect of the school is its tutoring labs where I often did my math homework. At no extra cost you can hang out in a tutoring lab for math/science/English, etc. and ask designated students for help as needed. If you're looking to save some money and transfer to a university, Lane is a great choice. As for their career pathway courses, they vary a lot depending on the program. I took their non-credit pharmacy course and credit internship which was just okay. I would recommend a more thorough track, like their dental assistant program, if being job-ready is your goal.
Don't let it's nationally recognized nursing program fool you -- Lane Community College seldom meets benchmarks of excellence. A struggling college with majors for every person, Lane Community College excels compared to other schools in only two things: diversity, and a great medical program. Lane has been known to cancel programs, misuse funds, and raise tuition of students. Their financial aid office is less than moderately okay, and their teachers are overworked and underpaid. If you get the opportunity to study elsewhere, take up the opportunity. Don't feed the college who's only existing for the money.
