What makes Lake Erie College a unique place?

My undergraduate experience was at a small liberal arts college and I appreciated the small class sizes and the ability to connect with my professors and be involved in campus activities. The same is true here at Lake Erie College; students can easily become engaged inside and outside of the classroom as well as be involved in leadership positions that help them grow both personally and professionally. Knowing that the students’ main goal is to begin preparation for a rewarding career, emphasis is placed on developing critical thinking skills to solve real world marketing problems in many of the marketing courses taught here.
