I believe that the college should be accredited the highest star rating. There is a very present LGBTQ community, which I believe is amazing for them, rainbow flags (although they are not my thing, I prefer the red, white, and blue) fly all over the campus from trucks, cars, backpacks, ponytails, hands, anything that can hold the flag upright the students fly their flags. Having that support in a college atmosphere makes me happy to be a red devil and proud to be a student at Lower Columbia College. GO RED DEVILS!

In my time at Lower Columbia College, I have been in classes with people of all ages who have been able to pass on life experience with me. Some classes have been geared towards the development of social skill such as public speaking while others have focused on developing my skills as a student. In times when I was struggling with classes, I was able to go to the tutoring center and receive the help that made it so I could complete my class work while also learning. The classes are small enough for the professors to get to know you as a person and help you out when needed.
Overall I have had a good experience attending Lower Columbia College. For the most part the instructors are great and the support staff available to students has contributed considerably to my success as a student. However, I think they need to replace the instructor and advisor of the medical assisting program with people who actually care about helping students succeed. Their derogatory attitude and unrealistic expectations toward struggling students was completely unbecoming an educational institution whose purpose is supposed to be to prepare students for entering the workforce. With the exception of my disappointing experience in the medical assisting program I have no complaints about Lower Columbia College as a whole.
