Lake Land College opens EIU Service Center on Mattoon campus

Lake Land College, in coordination with Eastern Illinois University recently opened the EIU Service Center on Lake Land’s campus in Mattoon. 

“Lake Land and Eastern have shared a long and wonderful history,” said Tina Stovall, vice president for student services at Lake Land. “We know that through this strong relationship, students who transfer from Lake Land to Eastern are well prepared for transfer and are well taken care of once they’re at Eastern.” 

Cecilia Yoakum is the EIU staff member serving as the coordinator of the center and she said that she is very excited to start meeting with students to hear about their aspirations as they move toward completing their bachelor’s degree. According to Yoakum, she plans to offer students information beyond just transferring classes, including study abroad opportunities, student employment and internships. 

“There is nothing better than having that person-to-person contact when you’re a student making a transition to another institution,” said Bill Perry, president of Eastern Illinois University. “This is an invaluable resource which will certainly enhance the transfer flow between the institutions.”

According to Lake Land College President Josh Bullock, both institutions hope the number of Lake Land students who transfer to Eastern increases as students begin to visit the EIU Service Center. 

“Providing that personal attention and close working relationship is not only what makes students successful, but that’s what contributes to a strong community and economy throughout east central Illinois,” said Bullock.

Nearly 350 students transfer from Lake Land to EIU each year. In fact, EIU is the top school for Lake Land transfer students. This transfer rate is made possible by several 2 + 2 articulation agreements between the two institutions in order to make the transition to a four-year university as smooth as possible for students. The articulation agreements allow students to complete a bachelor’s degree in two additional years. 

For more information about transfer opportunities, call Lake Land College Counseling Services at (217) 234-5232.
