Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation.

What Students Are Saying

3.38 Average Rating
Lakeland is a great place for students who prefer one on one time with teachers. There are so many activities on campus that you do not notice we are in the middle of a cornfield. The atmosphere is incredible and I could not have picked a better school.
Alyssa from Waterford, WI
Lakeland college is awesome; there are activities, athletics, and academics. The staff of the school makes the experience that much better with their small class sizes and increased one-on-one time. I would suggest this school for anyone looking to have fun, learn, and meet great people.
Aimee from Algoma, WI
Coursework is challenging--good information to prepare a student for the postcollegiate world. Most professors are good, but-like any school--there are some who don't know how to teach (even if they know their subject).
Dwight from Sun Prairie, WI
Lakeland College provides a great college experience for anyone looking into a smaller campus size. As small as it may be, it is a big campus once you get used to it. Lakeland is its own community and family.
At Lakeland you are not just a number. The Lakeland community works to keep you involved and happy. They truely care about every aspect of your life.
Kat from Elkhart Lake, WI
