I visited Linn-Benton Community College for an admitted student college night a few weeks ago, and let me just say: nice! I am planning on attending college at LBCC because it has a small, comfortable environment and it is exactly what I was in a college. The homey atmosphere is ideal for college freshman, not to mention how welcoming the staff and students were!

My experience at LBCC so far has been fantastic! The teachers are approachable and truly care about how their students are doing in class. I haven't had the most success in some of the math classes I've taken, but that is due to me not quite understanding some of the things talked about in class. The instructors I've had all understand and had done everything they could to help me be successful in class, and I have nothing bad to say about any of them. Last year, I took the Young Horse Training class lead by Cindy Gooch and I have to say that was one of the best classes I've ever taken. It gave me a great opportunity to learn some really great horse training methods that I could apply to my own horse. Also last year, in Fall term I took a writing class lead by Bruce Nicholson and that was the best writing class I had ever taken.
I found LBCC to be a very organized and helpful community college. I never had any issues in the financial aid office, advising, or student services centers. The only inconvenience I encountered while being a student here was that I had to drive from corvallis every day, which was a personal choice. I found most of my instructors to be quality teachers. I rarely felt I was missing out on any educational experience by choosing a community college over the local university. I attended this school for two years and would strongly recommend it to anyone considering an education at a community college.
