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.

I love the one-on-one attention you receive from instructions pertaining to your educational needs. The staff is extremely helpful, as well as knowledgeable. Being an adult student with young children is difficult, but the staff at LCCC are there every step of the way to help in any way they can. They do whatever it takes to help us succeed on our journey to graduation and beyond.
The faculty was readily available to guide and help students with regards their educational needs. The fact there is tutoring service is a great resource which is of great academic benefits especially in terms knowledgeable staff.
In terms of technology, the computer labs are well equipped and the internet connection on campus is good which facilitates learning.
