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.

Northlake is a small school with a lot of personality! There are people from all over the world that come to North Lake which leaves for a good mix of different cultures and spirit. Northlake has a really good student atmosphere which allows for students from all over the world to come and mingle. A lot of students are new to this area and are always looking to make new friends. If you want to save money but still get an education that will propel you forward, North Lake is the place to go.
The professors are helpful and care about their students. Overall, they communicate well with their students and let them know what they need to do to get a passing grade. They also seem to have a passion for their subject, and when your professor likes their subject, it's easy to enjoy their class. Personally, I find that the professors are easy to talk to and willing to work with students when their workload inevitably becomes difficult to handle. However, I feel that the college could offer better advertisement for their clubs (such as, for example, Speech club.) I think it would encourage student involvement in leadership and community activities if they provided posters in the hallways on campus of the various clubs that students could participate in.
