Lower Columbia College Reviews

Lower Columbia College is a tight-knit community with ample resources and lots of activities. However, communication is something LCC is missing. While there are tons of exciting things to do - most students miss out by being uninformed. Currently, our daily devil (the student government newsletter) hasn't been updated since the beginning of June and it's now December. Another thing that LCC could stand to work on is its ability to teach math - I know most of America, doesn't know how to teach math but LCC's version is frankly... laughable. They require math students to take a test every week and if you fail one test, you have to take it until you pass otherwise you fail the entire class - over one test! They have a good tutoring center but nothing can help the poor students who are stuck taking math classes over and over again due to test anxiety. Last year, a student went to the dean about lessening the number of tests or making it more "anxiety" friendly.

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!
LCC has a variety of program options, now including some Bachelor Degrees at this community college! The staff is knowledgable and helpful. There are many clubs and activities to join as well as many financial resources.
