This will be my second year here at Lansing Community College and I couldn't be happier. I love that I'm away from home from still paying less then I would be if I chose a 4 year university. The athletics are amazing, and also the professors are great! Just have to find the right ones. I love that Lansing community college is able to offer online classes because that definetly helps me with softball. I am able to do stuff when I'm free and on my own time which I really enjoy.
Review Lansing Community College
LCC is a good school, and you can’t beat the price. As long as you check RateMyProf, you can get amazing professors. Most professors I've had are competent and truly care about their students. There aren't many campus organizations, but there's usually something to do. Campus is full of all sorts of unique people from different backgrounds and viewpoints.

The administration, unfortunately, stinks at prioritizing where to spend money. Instead of putting money where they should (e.g., paying their instructors and getting more counselors on staff), the administration spends millions on uselessly fancy construction projects. It takes away money that could be going toward professors who work hard for their students, and it's shameful. It's no wonder my favorite instructor I ever had recently left LCC because she got a better-paying job elsewhere; she loved teaching, but it wasn't financially viable for her.

LCC is a great school, but the administration is not doing it any favors.
I am currently an online student, however will be commuting to main campus during the Spring 2016 semester. Classes for me have been great. Online instructors are dedicated to making sure each student has the proper materials and information needed to succeed in the class. My biggest fear was not receiving the same college experience that those who commute achieve, however this was not the case. Students interact with one another through discussion posts and even find each other on social media sites, such as Twitter. The only thing that makes online classes difficult is the commute to take exams. I understand that they must be proctored, however the whole reason I am taking online courses is because of my driving situation. It would be great if something could be done to solve this problem. Other than that my overall experience has been great!
