As a former dual credit student at North Lake College, I can say that the classes offered here are great, not to mention that the professors are extremely nice and caring. I took my classes online so I cannot really speak of the campus itself but I can assure you that you will have a good time whether you take your classes online or on campus!

North Lake College is an good, affordable option for those who could not jump to a four year institution like myself. The classes are flexible and the professors are eager to share their knowledge with you. The classes are not as big as one would assume, which is great, and online classes are just as great.

However, the staff can be difficult to work with. You will either have a pleasant experience or an unpleasant experience depending on which staff member you are with. Staff never communicates well with you--even if you go in person. I have had multiple unpleasant experiences, so now I tend to avoid going to campus if I can.

Overall, I do not think that North Lake College is a bad option. Classes and professors are great, but the staff brings my rating down.
The professors really attempt to connect with individual student for their benefit; Although it is a community college, everyone tries to help one another and the fact that the campus is very diverse is comforting as a POC. The school is very sustainable to the point that the graduation robes are safe to the environment! Knowing that your school cares for the world as much as they care for you as an individual student, makes attending classes here feel like home.
