My experience at LBCC so far has been fantastic! The teachers are approachable and truly care about how their students are doing in class. I haven't had the most success in some of the math classes I've taken, but that is due to me not quite understanding some of the things talked about in class. The instructors I've had all understand and had done everything they could to help me be successful in class, and I have nothing bad to say about any of them. Last year, I took the Young Horse Training class lead by Cindy Gooch and I have to say that was one of the best classes I've ever taken. It gave me a great opportunity to learn some really great horse training methods that I could apply to my own horse. Also last year, in Fall term I took a writing class lead by Bruce Nicholson and that was the best writing class I had ever taken.

Linn-Benton Community College is often looked as less competent than a university or a private college, because the community college stigma. However, the instructors/professors deliver proficient lectures and lessons that would otherwise be experienced in a non-community college classroom. They have expectations and hold the student accountable for putting their own part into the class. It's definitely not an "easy route,"it's individualized college career, despite it not carrying 300 level courses it remains academically meticulous. In the social aspect, Linn-Benton isn't shy in providing clubs and activities for all their students's interests. I joined a political campaign club for the presidental candidate, Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont. We discuss his issues, recruit members, debate with other opposing students, but mostly the goal is to inform people on what he has to offer the country. I enjoy attending events such as study jams and watching the arts/theater department perform. LBCC is unique in it's inviting enviroment, anyone can reach their potential, despite any aspect that may have once hindered them. I definitely would choose to spend my first two years here, because it eases the fear of college, it's financially comfortable, and there is a various kind of people to emerge in.

As a second year student at Linn-Benton Community College I have experience with the college. I really enjoy the small class sizes and how interactive the instructors are with the students' learning. They really show how much they want us to succeed. The Learning Center is a great place to get help from tutors, for FREE, and to study in its quiet environment. LBCC also have delicious food at the Courtyard Cafe to grad on the way to class or to sit down and study with. The students on campus are very lively, making it an enjoyable place to be. LBCC is also an excellent place to start if a student is unsure on what they want to study or to find out if college is for them.
