This school attempts to mimic the atmosphere ofQuite BrightComputer Science
This school attempts to mimic the atmosphere of a University with neither the staff or budget to properly execute. Counselors and advisers do NOT take a personal interest in the students success. The financial aid department was caught utilizing nepotism to award public money, and had to restaff the entire department. Adult students returning to the college are treated as lepers, with no mechanism to eliminate old credits, allowing a fresh start. Without an academic clemency program, unfavorable grades linger on your transcript longer than a bankruptcy lingers on your credit report, without any resolution. DO NOT GO TO CLC! You are much better off utilizing Harper College!

Question
The College of Lake County was one ofHistory/Histories (art history/etc.)
The College of Lake County was one of the best things that ever happened to me. After a lackluster high school career, I was exposed to wonderful, patient teachers who truly cared and challenged me. I will never forget how much my mind grew during my two years at CLC. I was also involved in the Student Senate and College Bowl. The Senate helped me develop leadership skills which I still use today. I cannot say enough about CLC. I have a daughter who is very smart (99th percentile in both math and reading) and I would strongly encourage her to attend CLC before deciding on a four-year school. It truly gives you time to explore academia before focusing on a certain area of interest.

Question
I was pretty nervous about going to CollegeAverageEnglish
I was pretty nervous about going to College at first, but i'm filled with confidence ever since I first started going to CLC. My teachers are very halpful and understanding as are my classmates. The work is definitely challenging, though not as immensely difficult as I was expecting it to be. Overall i'm very satsified here and I hope I will have many great experiences in this College. If you want experience before you go off to a four-year College, then this is a great place to start.
