4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It is one of the cheapest routes you can go but it still offers excellent resources and the classes are still top notch.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: There is so much diversity. Whether it is ethnicity or just style in general. One day you might see someone dressed on all black with gages and Mohawks and down the hall there might be another person dressed all fancy and someone else might be in their pajamas.

College Sophomore

Career Services: I honestly have no experience in this.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: The professors give some leway if you are late to class or if you have to make up an assignment.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: All the facilities are up to date and look great.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition is cheap and they have a book rental on most books, so you are not spending all that extra money on books. the financial aid process is long and unnecessary. You fill out everything on the fafsa application. But yet they still ask for all this extra paperwork that is on the fafsa account. It is like they are making it easier on them but harder on us for asking us to bring in all these W-2s when they can look up all that information.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The nursing program is really hard to get into because of the amount of people trying to get in. Some of the classes are fairly difficult and take up all of your free time for studying.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The professors do a good job helping the students outside of class. The downfall is the fact that some professors do not have very many office hours or do not even have an office.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I use the gym quite often. It is a really nice facility.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: You can rarely find a printer that works. I had to buy my own because every time I went to print something the printer was jammed or all the computers were taken. Walking all around campus trying to find a working printer stressed me out. The wifi is very unstable also. It was frustrating trying to get my laptop to connect to the wifi, especially when sitting in a classroom.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I prefer the visual learning. I would rather sit in a classroom than do it online, but I took an online class because I could not get it to fit into my schedule. I was not expecting to have four assignments due every Monday just for that one class. I felt a little overwhelmed but I still passed.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Its a small school, and tuition is cheaper, so needless to say, you get what you pay for. There are some things that are left to be desired like de-icing parking lots so you don't break your neck, but Lakeland is also still good because of the people behind it.

3 College Junior

Career Services: I'm not really sure about job prospects offered. There are some certificate opportunities. I got my CNA license at lakeland, which has proven useful, but I don't know about any others.

3 College Junior

Student Body: The majority of the student body seems to be people who are returning to school after being out of it for a while. While I admire their bravery, its kind of annoying because there are some people who just aren't up to younger students' levels, which slows the curriculum down quite a bit.

2 College Junior

Academic Experience: Technicality Lakeland doesn't even have my major. I switched majors from pre-med to linguistics, but I have to be classified as "undecided" because lakeland doesn't offer my major.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: For the most part, the teachers are very nice. I have met a couple who have gotten too big for their britches, but as I said, the majority are very caring, and are flexible.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Science classes aren't very flexible. You have to attend almost everyday, and most are only available from 9 to 12, and there is some issue with registering classes when one ends at for example 1:55, and another class you want to take starts at 1:50. Classes fill up quickly too, so there's not much wiggle room when students run into these issues.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: More often than not, the printers are out of order. We used to have issues with the old online network (Blackboard) too, but our new one (Canvas) seems to be easier to use, and doesn't crash as much.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: I don't know much about the athletic center, but I can say that the library is good. It has a lot in the refrence center, especially for a community college, but some of the books are older, and its hard to figure out how to search for the book you need. I also wish they had more fiction books.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: I feel a lot of the teachers aren't trained on how to teach an online class. Some of them are very vague on what they want. Also, a few of my online classes expected students to complete a two page paper, read five textbook chapters, and take a quiz all in just one week. Many of these online classes are very reading intensive, and most don't sound that way until you're actually enrolled in the class.

3 College Junior

Facilities: Nothing really stands out about Lakeland College. Its a standard community college that doesn't have a lot of choices on majors, or clubs, however; what they lack in some areas, Lakeland makes up for itself with down to Earth teachers who honestly care about our education.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition isn't bad.Most classes only cost about three hundred to four hundred dollars a piece, which pales in comparison to graduate colleges.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: Teachers are actually advocates for the students. Very knowledgeable in the program. Very hands on in the learning aspect and all instructors are dental hygienist or dentist.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: The college offers many academic programs

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: It is hard for me to answer this question. I do not apply for financial aid. I have never used it b/c I already posses a degree that I am currently not using, and b/c of this I can’t not qualify for the assistant of financial aid.
