3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: the school is ok. nothing really to say about it so far.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I never had a problem with the tuition and financial aid process.

1 College Sophomore

Online Courses: i'm not that familiar with the online courses.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: The school is some what convenient. But, sometimes the teachers are willing to help you.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: The school has many student bodies. But i'm not sure what the acceptance and challenges it takes to get in.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The College Of Lake County has many resources available to its students. They have 2 libraries many campus activities. everything there is great.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The courses i took were ok. But, the teachers were lively great at helping understand the topic.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have never been on a internship nor had a job.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I went here solely for gen-eds and such, so nothing to really offer about taking a specific major. I ended up taking 17 credits first semester and 13 credits second semester, and the workload wasn't too bad at all. So long as you're able to stay on top of things, its definitely achievable to do heavy credit-loads. The curriculum was better for some classes than others, but then again, there is often more work needed in some classes than others, so this is understandable.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The professors were great, and I never seemed to have a negative experience with any of them (although for some, the lectures were boring and seemingly useless in the long-run). Curriculum varied with each class, and as would be suspected, the math and science classes had the most to be done. Nothing bad though, so no worries here. The one thing that angered me with really my entire experience here was when a class was cancelled for me in the fall semester. I had planned to take five transferrable classes in the fall, but one ended up being cancelled, and I was notified one or two days before the fall semester started. The really fun part was scrambling over to Grayslake to find another class that was transferrable, as well as still open that late in the process. In the end it all worked out, and I was able to take all the classes I needed in the fall and spring. But that is still a crappy situation to be in.

3 College Sophomore

Career Services: This wasn't something that I had to be involved in as I am transferring to get my Bachelor's, but from what I saw, there did seem to be a nice effort to help people with the pursuit of jobs. Not a strong alumni network I would imagine, but it is what you would think to be for a community college.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Really not too much to say here. There were a couple nice study spots, as well as some nice architecture with this school. But there wasn't really anything stand-out, and again, it wasn't like I was expecting there to be.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Let me just say, I would choose the path I chose (first year of college at community college then transferring) because it saved me a great deal of money. I also enjoyed every professor I had, as they truly did care about me as a student and provided me help if I needed it. It was kind of a bummer socially, as there wasn't really too much interaction outside of the classrooms. There also is little school spirit (although I wasn't expecting there to be any), so athletics and such were not a part of the experience, as they may be at four-year universities. All-in-all, the availability of courses that transferred to the OOS four-year I was planning on transferring to, as well as the cheap price for the classes, made this all worth it.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: I don't want to sound condescending as I type this, but there were some students who just didn't care. They talked about how much they hated the place and how irrelevant it was to them to learn anything for their future careers. As a result, a lot of them did not put in the work to get a good grade, yet wanted to know why they weren't doing as well as they wanted to. A professor even told me she was disappointed in the effort levels of some of the students, as it seemed that they didn't meet the requirement levels required to even get in the class.

But this is not the entire view. They are some fantastic students here, well-driven and motivated to pursue their education and their careers. But it all depends on what classes you are taking, as well as who you surround yourself with.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The only "resources" that I used at this institution were the gym and the library when I had to type a paper. The gym was standard, not overwhelming but it was able to provide me with a surrounding that I could do my workouts in. The library was pretty nice, and I was able to get my papers typed in a quiet environment.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Typically, I had nothing to worry about in terms of choosing classes at this institution. The only problem I ended up having was that a class I had enrolled in ended up being cancelled, and I had been notified one or two days before the fall semester started. Needing to have five classes on my schedule, finding another class to replace the cancelled up with turned into chaos, but I was still able to get it done.

5 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Was going here to take gen-ed classes that would transfer out to a four-year, because you cannot beat the lower price. A year's worth of classes for a much lower price and no student loans was an incredible opportunity. However, I did not pursue financial aid at this school, so I cannot speak in regards to that.

4 College Senior

Student Body: There is a lot of diversity at the college. Many of my classmates were exchange students from other countries such as Nigeria and the Ukraine. Some students are fresh out of high school while others are parents and full-time workers as well as students.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: My experience for learning my major (which is accounting) was average one semester, but great for another semester. For the first semester, my financial accounting teacher was okay at explaining subject matter and what to expect for the test, but he didn't seem to connect well with the class, or understand that some of us work and go to school at the same time. My managerial accounting teacher was great though. He was understanding, gave you extra help at his office hours, offered advice and in my case, a recommendation for a scholarship. It really depended on what kind of teacher I had, which shaped my experience of the program workload.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: The library is usually available for source materials and online resources are pretty straightforward and helpful for group or individual projects. It also provides a good work area for homework, group project outlining, and the staff can be helpful in looking for what you need.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: The computer network at this college is average. They give you a certain amount of pages that you can print for free (I believe the limit is 150 pages) and then after that you are charged a dime for printing pages after that initial 150 pages. The page count resets after each semester, which is nice.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I would still choose to go to this school because it's conveniently located near where I live, so commuting isn't much of an issue. The class times and availability of online and hybrid (Part lecture, part online classes) are also a plus.

3 College Senior

Career Services: I have been lightly informed of some of my transfer options and scholarship choices were barely mentioned,but I did receive some help from the career center about options and there are programs available to help you prepare for interviews and review your resume.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I had no problems getting my financial aid through, and no problems after I received the proper financial aid, although I had a friend that goes to the same college, and he had some problems; he was hassled about his eligibility but he was equally qualified as I was.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: The school hasn't given me much hassle about anything, my school experience when it comes to classes and the curriculum is average.
