Am learning a lot
I have been able to learn how to become a better parent at Lane by taking a few courses on early childhood education. I have also learned how to become a better writer and have been able to win one award for my high school because of the great writing teachers. I got third place and $300 because of it.
Am enjoying being here
I enjoy being at Lane Community College because it is a smaller college and I have been able to make friends and in turn have made some study buddies. Lane also has really good online classes that make it easy for me to be a mother and a student at the same time. My teachers have always been understanding if my daughter gets sick. They have always given me extra time to finish work if I am not able to get it in right away.
Bang for the buck
Getting scholarships and loans for Lane Community College has been the easiest thing I have ever done. They make it easy by having an office just for getting money to pay for school!
Tips for prospective students
Do your homework and always let your teacher's know ahead of time if you are not able to make it to class. If you have a child and want to be home with your child talk to your counselor and they will let them know that you would like to look into online classes. They are always happy to help!
Great for these types of students
Students who can not get into four year colleges.
Students who have not been able to graduate.
Students who are worried about being in a big school.
Students who have children that are infant to toddler age that they want to be near.
Lane has a great daycare!!!!

There are wide range of classes to take at Lane. I was enrolled in a Human Sexuality class where I learned so many things that you really are not allowed to learn in high school. They covered every aspect of sexuality you could imagine. There are several different types of English classes, including fun classes. In one, you analyze the lyrics of Bob Dylan as poetry and literature. I took a Shakespeare class, and learned about his works in a different way than I did in high school. The professor was encouraging and funny.
Am enjoying being here
The campus is not too big, but still has space to make you feel like you are attending a college and not a high school. There are a variety of plants, sculptures, sitting areas, and different shaped buildings. It's a beautiful campus. Diversity is also huge, being that the school is in Eugene. All types of people attend the school, and it's fun to look at them and get to know them.
Bang for the buck
The tuition is tiny. Each class is less than 100$ on average, and some are only slightly higher. Also, I was able to get a fair amount of financial aid without having a high GPA and lots of extracurricular activities. I am going to be able to do one term of college for less than 2,000 dollars.
Tips for prospective students
If you decide to attend Lane Community, be aware that the enrollment is at its highest ever. The parking is more crowded than usual, but these are small problems. One area that can be obnoxious is in building 1. You have to take a number to get any assistance, and many of the people who could be working an information window are not. It is sometimes hard to get help unless you are there really early.
Great for these types of students
Students who want a smaller school and have less money to spend would definitely like LCC. It's also great for a variety of majors. There are great art, literature, physical education, and science classes. Those who want certifications are 2 year degrees are ideal, because LCC offers those two. You can also transfer from LCC to a University. It makes it much easier and you are more likely to earn scholarships and grants to attend the more expensive school based on your time at Lane.

lane community college is a great school with a hard working, friendly faculty that give personal attention to their students which is made easy by our smaller class sizes. also, lcc has a sustainable organic garden on campus, run by students and that is utilized by our culinary department and classes on sustainable living abound here because our community is so dedicated to green alternatives and options. our performing arts department is unsurpassed, with shows put on throughout the year by lcc's production company run entirely by students in the spa (student production association) plus jazz/classical/contemporary concerts and dance performances by both by students and faculty.
Tips for prospective students
my suggestion to everyone starting at lcc is to utilize all the resources made available to you. we have bus passes paid for in our fees, a helpful financial aid dept., counseling dept. that can help you plan out your time at lane, access to an on campus health clinic also paid for in our fees, as well as free legal aid and many more services.
Academic Rigor
my first time in community college wasn't like this, i feel challenged and i leave every term feeling like i have advanced my knowledge in the subjects i am studying, not like i have wasted my time. i feel that i make connections with my teachers and they themselves become resources in my life. so far not one moment in any class has left me bored, i am kept on my toes at every turn.
Food and Dining
we have a culinary staff that is immpecible, and our services range from a fast food area, where people can grab that fast hot item or pull from the vending machines a plethura of things including healthy versions of the classic vending machine, a section of hot entrees like; fresh pizza out of the big oven, sushi made fresh in front of you, a deli with hot soup and made to order sandwiches, or the classic cafeteria style buffet. many choices, all of them good. the culinary students also get to show off their skills in our renaissance room set up for fine dining.
What to do for fun
school is fun! there are plays and music performances, lots of clubs, chess tournaments, gardening, student lounges with a variety of activities going on.
Bang for the buck
the classes at lcc are affordable and financial aid is there as well to help families and low income students.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

Vary compelling as far as options for transferring. They designed their own math curriculum. There most well known for having a game programming track to learn to be a programming.
Tips for prospective students
Get your applications in as soon as possible. Attend any of the campus events you can to learn more about the programs they offer and how to get ahead.
Dorm Life
They have just finished the Titan Court, I will also be leasing one of these new premium fully furnished apartments. Perfect for a student to get started without the hassle of getting settled in, and they are all vary close to any resource you would need.
Food and Dining
I did not find vary many dining options on campus, and they are in a sort of remote location so your options become limited unless you leave campus for lunch.
What to do for fun
There are tons of student clubs and events to attend, and if you don't find something that peaks your interest you can always create your own club and invite members.
Bang for the buck
All of the staff is working here because they wanted to get to know the students on the personal level and help them achieve there goals. With this level of close education I cant think of a better location to start your academic journey.

Am learning a lot
At LCC the opportunities and classes are great, I have learned alot of new information since beginning. My favorite class and most beneficial so far has been Effective Learning 115. This course taught me all sorts of different and new study habits and procrastination management. The other courses I have taken so far have been very informative so far.
Am enjoying being here
I enjoy attending LCC, it's not too large and very convenient that they have a satelite campus where I live, I live 25 miles from their main campus. Being a smaller community college it has a more intimate feel than a major university, all my professors so far still recognize me in the hallways and stop to say hi and catch up.
Bang for the buck
Like most community colleges, LCC is a great value for the price, at an average of right around $1300 per term, including books it feels like a great value. This price covers 4 classes.
Tips for prospective students
For prospective students, I highly recomend the Effective Learning 115 course. It is a great introduction into study skill, time management, note taking and more. Just bear in mind that being a community college there will be alot of student straight out of high school that don't take their education seriously and can tend to be a distraction.
Great for these types of students
LCC is great for older students, lower income students and students looking for simple 2 year AAS degrees.
