When Lakeland College opened in 1913, there were only 34 students enrolled. Today we have two campuses and over 8,000 full- and part-time students --- but Lakeland is as tight-knit as ever.
Our classes are small, so your instructors get to know you --- not just your name but also your wants, needs, hopes, and fears. They can sense when to challenge you and when to cut you some slack. If you have a question or a concern, the door’s always open. And if you need a place to board your horses for the summer, an extra ticket to the basketball game, or a recommendation letter for a job application --- the door’s probably open for that, too.
Lakeland’s comfortable setting allows you to focus on learning. Our award-winning programs are designed to ease your transition into the work force and/or further study at a four-year institution. You’ll get a university-caliber education here --- but without the red tape, the big crowds and the distractions.
