A very low-quality education for a very highBrightComputer Science
A very low-quality education for a very high price. I have not been able to find a job in my field (Computer Science) due to this being a joke institution that employers do not hire from. My classmates have the same issue with not being able to find work in our high-demand field due to Lakeland's extremely poor reputation. One of my classmates, also a CS major, is now working as a ticket vendor at a theme park part-time because that's all he can find with Lakeland on his resume. As for the environment, the so-called Academic Resource Center is run by a very creepy, obese old man who stares at the students with glazed eyes and heavy breathing, even the middle-schoolers who come to the "Music Camp" in the summer. In another instance, a female international student was sexually assaulted by a guy who invited her to his dorm for "netflix and chill," knowing that she wouldn't understand what that meant. In another case, a man came to the gym and was waving a gun around. After that, all of the security staff walk around with loaded guns. Keep in mind this is a tiny school in the middle of nowhere, not some crime-ridden ghetto. This is even more unsettling because most of these "security" guards are obviously HUGE steroid users, and seem like they just can't wait to shoot someone.

Question
Small campus, somewhat diverse, very nice people (studentsAverageEducation
Small campus, somewhat diverse, very nice people (students & staff), very safe environment. Extracurricular activities (especially athletics) lack. Greek Life is very fun, BUT Student/athletes are discouraged from Greek Life...but Coaches don't tell you that, (legally they cannot). When coaching staff becomes aware that one of their athletes is considering or pledging a Greek organization, they are abruptly removed from the team with no warning and are given bs reasons for their removal. Greek Life for athletes is secretly discouraged by most coaches, but since this school is a D3 school that does NOT offer athletic scholarships, coaches shouldn't be allowed to discourage their players from exploring other options outside of their sport as long as they are loyal to their commitment to their team. Extracurricular activities outside of your sport should be encouraged at any place of learning. Trying new activities in college should be a part of your college experience and life learning process. However it is not something that happens at Lakeland.

Question
Form my desired career,Computer Science
Form my desired career, a BA/BS degree is almost always required, so this was the ticket to get my foot in the door. Students and future students, don't kid yourself by thinking that the hard work and learning ends with your degree; if you're worth your salt is begins there...
