    ALL - especially those who have started college but for some unfortunate even has been unable to complete it. LLCC is the best choice for all by far.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you're stuck choosing between a College and a University to attend, starting small and building up is a wise choice. Attending Lincoln Land Community College allows you to obtain an associate degree for more than half the price you'll pay a University to attend for two years. Also, with the economy as it is now, LLCC provides ensures that you will depart with a degree as long as you have the desire to obtain it.

    Bang for the buck

    College is a valuable and wise life investment, would you agree? Would you also agree nothing beats free but free it's self. That being said, Lincoln Land Community College alike any other college has a price. What makes LLCC stand out above the rise is its price. LLCC ranged top 5 in the less expensive college in the mid states. For an average of $1,500 - $ 2,500 a semester ($90 per credit hr) you can receive a two year degree, an Associate, for $6,000 - $10,000; if you know you receive FASFA you’re already set to go. Over 90% of the students at LLCC receive FASFA and typically upon that they also receive cash for $200 - $900 for other expenses like transportation.

    Am enjoying being here

    The atmosphere at Lincoln Land Community College is very welcoming and student oriented. With faulty waiting to assist when needed and Deans and Councilors ready to guild you when you’re confused; LLCC is a great choice. The class sizes are max of 25 students but on average 15 - 20. That alone allows LLCC to bring about a whole new type of catering for the students of their college and they do so darn well. You have to see to believe, start with a visit to the campus first or simply call; you’ll see.

    Am learning a lot

    Appling yourself is a given when you think about attending college. Here at Lincoln Land Community College you’re not just a pawn in the big scheme of things but Kings and Queens of the most important decision of Lincoln Land Community College. Attend LLCC and you will immediately notice the special attention and focus students are given...because we are not just students, we are the future.

    The campus on Lincoln Land is very safe. The Lincoln Land police are constantly patrolling campus making everyone feel extremely comfortable. The new lights make it really bright at night so people with night classes will feel safe walking in the parking lot.

    Clubs and Activities

    Great for these types of students

    Great for students who like small classrooms. Also great for people with busy schedules.

    Bang for the buck

    Extremely cheap school compared to other colleges and universities. You basically will have no debt when you graduate, so that is always a plus.

    Food and Dining

    Nelson's Catering is served on campus and is delicious. We also have a subway which is always fresh.

    Dorm Life

    There is none here at Lincoln Land but there are several nearby apartment complexes that are very nice.

    Academic Rigor

    Some Instructors are a bit more tough than others but as a whole the school cares a lot about each and everyone succeeding.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get to class on time. Do not skip class, the more you are there the more you know! Read over everything very carefully so you can understand presented material. Also take advantage of the library and writing center.

    Parents, students with low high school GPAs or ACT scores since when you transfer those fall by the wayside, students with low income or in need of financial help.

    Bang for the buck

    About $90 a credit hour.

    Nice facility, classrooms, library, and student lounge.

    Campus Safety

    i can honestly say that even after night classes, i feel completely safe at lincoln land. they just put new light poles in the parking lot to make it brighter and they have cops everywhere.

    Clubs and Activities

    i am treasurer of the madrigals plus club on campus, which is the choir. there are many other clubs that are available for students to get involved with.

    Great for these types of students

    this school is great for students who may need extra help. the college has a wonderful math and writing center that goes the extra mile for helping students who need a little boost.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    there is the ring of fire. really it's just a big metal circle in front of the school. what is it for?? students to this day are completely clueless. no signs or anything in front of it. there is a joke between me and some other students that on graduation day they light the metal ring on fire and we get to ride our cars through it. if only that were true.

    Bang for the buck

    absolutely!! if i had to choose the best thing about lincoln land community college it would be the fact that i can say i am receiving my associates degree in two months and i am completely debt free!

    What to do for fun

    if you are looking for fun, keep up with loggerpalooza. the club keeps up with numerous fun activities at school to keep kids out of trouble. we once even had a sky diving simulator. that was a blast to do in between classes.

    Food and Dining

    there are only two places to eat in campus. there is a subway that is run by very friendly workers, and a regular cafe line that is run through nelson's catering. although this is all that there is the cafeteria is spacious, and there is fast food restaurants within 5 minutes of the school.

    Dorm Life

    if you are wanting a dorm life, this is not the college for you. since it is a community college there is not a dormitory for kids. you either live with your parents or get an apartment in springfield.

    Academic Rigor

    i have thoroughly enjoyed ever class i have taken at lincoln land community college. the professors are wonderful and very knowledgeable. i have learned a lot in my two years attending.

    Tips for prospective students

    if you are thinking of going straight to a university with being years in debt, think of the option of going to lincoln land and going two years completely debt free. you get the exact same diploma and take the same classes you would at a university. it was a wonderful option i'm so very grateful for taking advantage of.

    Campus Safety

    The LLCC police are always on the lookout, and it's a relatively small campus. The biggest issue is probably traffic violations. Besides the crazy parking, people are pretty docile.

    Greek Life

    There isn't any greek life here. That's alright considering most people are here just to get some classes done and go though. Plus it makes the campus a lot less clique-ish.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are a good number and variety of clubs to join. It seems like most of them are pretty dead though. It just takes someone to take the initiative and get them going though to make it fun.

    Great for these types of students

    LLCC is great for people wanting to stay at home rather than live on a campus. It's also ideal for those working full time. In general, people who want to be casual about going to college would enjoy it here.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    People don't usually stick around for very long after classes are done unless they're studying or are in a club of some sort. The Logger Lair is basically a game room where people can chill, but there aren't any unusual places per say.

    Bang for the buck

    LLCC is a realistic choice for starting out or completing a degree. The professors are awesome, and the general education classes are the same that one would get elsewhere. Why spend more to go somewhere less awesome?

    What to do for fun

    Red and Blue Crew have activities going on all semester. Soup and Stories events happen semi-frequently. Since it's a commuter campus, there's really not much to do ON campus.

    Food and Dining

    There is a subway and another place that does breakfast and lunch. Vending machines are everywhere for a quick snack. Other venues like fast food chains are located down the street a bit.

    Dorm Life

    There is no student housing. It's a commuter campus. There are apartments nearby, but not specifically for students.

    Academic Rigor

    Some classes are harder than other. It depends on the professors most of the time. Ask people who have taken the classes you want to take of their opinions before making any final decisions.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't overwhelm yourself your first year, and don't be afraid to utilize campus resources. Make an honest effort, and people will be more than willing to give you a hand when you need it. Take general courses required for graduation at first until you find out what you really want to do.

    In three sentences

    A majority of the professors are absolutely fantastic, friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. The school itself is in pretty good condition. Everyone can find something to study here!

    Campus Safety

    There are so many security officers. I can't turn a corner without seeing one. I've been there for about four months and I haven't noticed any bad situation.

    Greek Life

    There are no sororities or fraternities.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are so many clubs. For it being a small school there is probably over 25 clubs. It ranges from Agriculture Club to music and self defense clubs. There is a great variety.

    Great for these types of students

    Great for students that are on a budget, like a smaller atmosphere, want great education, flexible schedules, and shy students. I am extremely shy and I am perfectly okay at the college. The college is basically good for anyone.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Students dress up on halloween. I haven't been there long enough to know the in's and out's of the college.

    Bang for the buck

    Yes! It is extremely pocket friendly. At a max amount, the price would be around $4500 /year and that includes books. The prices are great!

    What to do for fun

    You can go to the different sports events and participate in clubs that you have joined.

    Food and Dining

    They have a cafeteria, but just down the road there are a lot of restuarants. Taco Bell, Wendy's, Subway, and McDonald's.

    Dorm Life

    It's a community college. There are no dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    At times it seems like you have no homework or papers, but then in a hot minute there are three papers assigned. That situation is happening to me at this very moment. It can be very stressful, but in the long scheme of things, it is worth it. LLCC has great education. It's not for people who don't want to work.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do your homework. Slackers are so annoying and get on people's nerves. Also, join clubs that you are interested in. Lastly, if you ever have a chance to work in a study group, do it! It will make you more comfortable and open.

    In three sentences

    Lincoln Land is great for students just getting out of high school. It's a small campus and very affordable. When I first started going I was so scared, but now I love it!

    Students bring their lunches to school. There's Subway and another place to buy food in the cafeteria. Also, there are fast food restaurants about three-five miles down the road.

    I don't live in a dorm, so I can't say much about this area

    Academic Rigor

    There is a lot of work to put into the studying, but the teacher's help with helping the student understand any confusing areas.

    Tips for prospective students

    Stay up with the topic and studying by looking at the material before the teacher talks about it.

    LLCC is a wonderful college to attend if you are just wanting to get general classes completed, if you are unsure of where you are wanting to graduate college from, if you are undecided in a major. or if you are even wanting to just save money. This school is a great cheap alternative, saving students thousands of dollars every semester.

    What to do for fun

    Springfield is filled with many bars, ice cream shops, parks, and theaters. LLCC provides many free events as well. These are usual held in the afternoons. They will provide entertainment and food free of charge.

    Food and Dining

    There is a Subway in the main building on campus available at all times of the day. There is also many fast food and pizza places that deliver to specific rooms on campus as well.

    Dorm Life

    Many people rent apartments or small town houses, therefore have to work part time as well as go to class. It is a hard adjustment at first but paying for college and attending at the same time helps pay all bills at once instead of years later.

    Academic Rigor

    Staying focused on school work is extremely important. I always hear just a community college and it makes me cringe. This school gives the same education and resources as do larger colleges with general classes many people are required to take.

    Tips for prospective students

    If I were to give advice to future students it would have to be to do research and stay focused. The more information you learn about different schools, majors, courses, scholarships, etc. the better off you are as a college student.

    In three sentences

    Lincoln Land is a wonderful school to attend after graduating high school. Many people dream of going off to a university as soon as they enroll into college, but unfortunately money can be an issue. LLCC provides the same classes, certificates, and opportunities as many four year universities.
