Lower Columbia College is a pretty good school. The Computer Science teachers are friendly and have a lot of knowledge. Sometimes it seems difficult for them to keep focus on a topic, but most of the time the discussions are relevant.
Tips for prospective students
Do your best with your work and your attendance. The teachers will know they can trust you more.
Academic Rigor
I definitely learned new things, but there's some room for improvement.
Dorm Life
I lived at home while attending, so I thought it was great! ;-)
Food and Dining
I haven't had the food myself, but others say it's good.
What to do for fun
Join a club and/or create a new one. Find others who like to do the same kinds of things as you. Bring a Frisbee and throw it around with some friends; there's open, grassy areas for it.
Bang for the buck
It's a community college, so it's definitely cheaper than a four-year university, but there's a few individuals in administration who like to up some costs.
Clubs and Activities
There's a variety of clubs, and student government does a pretty good job of providing other activities.
Campus Safety
Security personnel are nice, but the security systems on campus could be improved.

The professors make time to make sure you will be successful, they don't give up on you. The staff throughout the campus is very upbeat and extremely helpful, they want to make sure you feel comfortable!

Be prepared to attend classes with all ages of students. Also the parking sucks!

They have a great cafeteria with affordable prices for college students! During lunch time sometimes they will have shows or entertainment!
What to do for fun
LCC always is having great ways to keep the students involved in schools, whether its a campus fair, or simply a sporting event, the students are always given a chance to stay involved and have a good time doing it!
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
I spend a lot of my time at the baseball fields! During the summer a minor league baseball team has games there and the whole community comes out to watch! It's by far my most favorite thing about my town and the campus!
Great for these types of students
This college is great for students who want to be in a happy environment! This college is a community college so you have to be able to work with students of all ages! Students who want to be involved this is a great campus for that! It's the perfect college with that home away from home feeling!

Am learning a lot
Lower Columbia College (LCC) offers great classes that are required to get into the nursing program. They also offer the classes in a variety of ways so that all types of students can take them. For example they have online classes, night classes, early morning classes, etc. Another great thing is they have the learning center which is pretty much like a tutoring center. So, if you need help with any of your classes you can come in and a specialized tutor will help you with your problems. They can also help you learn how to study for big finals or tests which can come in handy.
Am enjoying being here
LCC is a very fun community college to go to, because there are always fun things going on around campus. There are many different clubs you can join which allows you to connect with other students. I am part of Multicultural club, which is a club that tries to promote diversity around the campus and our community. Many clubs host events around campus, so you can always find something to do in between classes or during your free time.
Bang for the buck
I am a full time student which mean on average I take about 15 credits a quarter, and for 15 credits my tuition is about $1,200 a quarter. This is a pretty good deal since that includes my books too which can be purchased used at the bookstore or online. Also your tuition covers the use of the school library, learning center, computer labs, and the gym.
Tips for prospective students
If you are thinking about becoming a red devil/ LCC student you should come into the admissions center and talk to one of the many wonderful advisors, because they can help you determine what classes you will need to take for your major and other useful things. Also in the admissions center you can take the compass test which helps determine what level of math, science, and english classes you should start off with.
Great for these types of students
LCC is a great campus for local Cowlitz county, Clark County, and Columbia county students, because its close to home and a great community college with lots to offer.
