  • Oct-24-2011 I am a past student here

    I loved attending LMC, i would not change anything about my experience. If I could change anything it would be learning even more than I did from the people around me.

    The atmosphere of the campus is such a tightly knit community it is near impossible not to form relationships that will last a life time. That is true of both peer relationships and with faculty members.

    I absolutely love the atmosphere of the mountains and the college. Everything is more laid-back and more enjoyable. The campus is surrounded by beautiful mountain views and the crisp mountain air. There is always something to do outside, even in the dead of winter. The professors also make it great because you begin to form a bond with them because you are actually a person here, not some kid in a room of 200.

    After I graduate in 2011, I plan to either work at the college or at least work in Banner Elk. It is so lovely and I really want to stay here. Too bad that LMC does not a Graduate program yet.
