What makes Lake Erie College a unique place?
Classroom discussion—the open, respectful exchange of ideas—is central to all the courses I teach, especially those in literature and critical thinking. And nothing enriches discussion so much as a genuine sense of community. Fortunately, with its small class sizes and its focus on meaningful interactions among faculty and students, genuine community is exactly what Lake Erie College provides. In my short time here, I’ve found that LEC’s commitment to faculty-student mentorship in the liberal arts tradition makes it an excellent place to learn and work.
