Seeking an engineering career, I first tried to locate America’s best engineering schools, and I came across the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign and the Illinois Institute of Technology. My thought became clearer; I made a decision: I wanted to find a community college in Illinois so that I could seamlessly transfer to one of those great schools. After applying to a couple of institutions, Lake Land College was the first one to reply. I immediately felt something special at that moment! 

LLC is such a well-organized institution that makes you feel precious. They want you to reach your goals and for that, everything is carefully organized. The classes, the teachers, the people and even the town are established in a way that will promote your success. The instructors are very competent and make sure you understand the material; your success is all that matters in their eyes. The people are very friendly and the frequent interactions really helped me in the improvement of my speaking and listening skills. Mattoon is probably the quietest town in the world; while studying you can even listen to the birds and hear the wind noise; it is such a great study atmosphere.
