I’ve been attending lbcc since August 2010. At first I was upset I was attending because none of my friends were going but once I began the semester I started to find new friends and make great connections to people who could help me further my career. I joined the track team at lbcc which also help me break out of my shell. I was also involved in a few clubs as well. This school is a great school for anyone looking to save some money and find new friends who can motivate you and push you to the your limits in a good way. I recommend this school to all high school students and others wanting to go back to school , don’t let others discourage you from saving money make your future about you because it’s your future!
I feel really comfortable going here and have made so many connections with many of the students. This college leaves a sense of open mindness for the students to experience. Also, the professors are always there for you to succeed. They always encourage you to continue your education and to be aware of current social issues. The only criticism I have is the administration staff. They are rude and provide no help. I sought help from several counselors and each told me something different so I then left it to myself to map out the rest of my college career at this college. Other than that, I have enjoyed my two years here.
