What Students Are Saying

3.74 Average Rating
The campus keeps expanding. It is nice because it is a small campus and every student knows each other. Easy to contact and stay in-touch with the professors.
Patrick from Tallmadge, OH
Lake Erie College is a well rounded community of students from nearby towns to across the pond countries. It has a home away from home atmosphere that brings everyone close. The staff and teachers are always eager to help better the success of their student body.
