I had a very positive experience at LCCC. It was a great school for me to transition from high school to college, because we all know that transition can be intimidating. The staff at LCCC, both administration and teachers, communicated information to the students well about deadlines, graduation and tuition payment options. They also have many campus locations and expanding their continuing ed programs which is nice for our area to be able to a provide college education to people at a very reasonable price. I wish they had 4 year degrees!

LCCC could be a great community college, but certain aspects hold it back. Most professors are amazing, but some have outdated teaching methods. Most will try to help you succeed, but few blame the students regardless. The campus is normally pretty quiet, with the exception of a few poorly planned events. If you are in a health science field that isn't nursing, communication about getting into a program is difficult. Counselors are few and extremely hard to reach. However, academics are the schools' main concern, and they do fairly well. Despite the cons, I would definitely recommend this college.
Very friendly and informative admissions representatives. Student advisors make it a point to be there for you, even at short notice. Informative and down to earth professors! There are several satellite campuses available and I found online courses to be well designed and user friendly over the summer. I attended the new Scranton Campus my first semester, and what an ease of access! The parking garage level was right outside the entrance, which was great when leaving at 9pm. I also had one class at the main campus in Nanticoke last spring, and will be attending there again this semester. It's an easy drive from any direction and easy to find. Parking lots are available on campus and a very short walk to classes, administration, and cafeteria. Overall, a great community college experience after high school, that can be a stepping stone in the future for a higher level of education if needed.
