I am currently attending College of Lake County and my experience has been spectacular. Practically everything is a learning experience. You earn a good education. Every individual at CLC benefits your experience. Also, the assignments are challenging but interesting, and if one works hard enough, you will earn a great grade. Putting in effort and getting involved have been significant to any college experience, no matter what college one is attending! The staff, professors, and students people are kind and are great persons to be around. Overall, CLC is a great college that seems to operate like the "adult world," meaning it'll do things such as teach you responsibility. I'd recommend this place to anyone.

The school is filled with amazing teachers that will help you get wherever you're headed with your career. The nursing program is tough, but many of the teachers have vast experience and knowledge in the field and teach you a lot. There are many resources available to students at CLC. The only bad thing about this school is their Financial Aid office. You will hear horror stories upon horror stories of students battling to get their refunds for a whole semester after the "aided" semester is finished. The office itself just makes you run in circles. If you can get past the financial aid, CLC is a top notch community college. I would strongly recommend it!

When I originally started going to CLC, I didn't take it seriously. Having been an honors student in high school with writing awards and a decent ACT score, my head was really big. I felt I was too good for community and the people here and I ultimately ended up having an awful time my first year. I made no friends and I even stopped showing up to class at a certain point and watched my GPA drop to a measly 2.8. I really regret my first year because it took me this long to realize how good our facilities are, how patient and accommodating our professors are, and how much we can really get out of the classes when we put forth effort. Aside from all that, student activities as their stuff together. Jay Pharoah of SNL performed here earlier this year! You aren't too good for community, and neither am I. If you're here, we're all here together and we're all learning together. I have a 4.0 currently and I worked for every bit of improvement. Don't worry about the stigma or judgement from your friends at four-year institutions, just enjoy your time here. I know I will!
