You dream. You plan. You worry. We understand.
You have spent a small fortune raising your child: Little League, football practice, piano lessons, horseback riding lessons, field trips, summer camp, and everything in between. Yet parents typically cite college as the single most important investment they make in their child’s life.
Lake Erie College specializes in your student. Their voice is their own, their dreams uniquely personal. So much attention is given to the concept of students finding themselves but without recognizing the change inherent in the journey. Our small campus combined with intimate class structure supports them as they grow. Professors and faculty supervise and guide them as they develop their voice, explore their dreams, and craft their future. We empower our students to lead lives of personal significance and professional success.
For over 160 years, LEC has been educating students for the world after college. We combine a liberal arts education with practical real-life experiences to develop students fluent in a world that is increasingly interdependent. We promote study abroad and provide internship opportunities with local, national, and international companies. Our curriculum emphasizes the growth of effective communication skills and the ability to think critically, helping students learn to make informed decisions along their journey.
Search for the top five most coveted skills employers seek in prospective employees, and they read like a liberal arts manifesto: learnability, resilience, agility, collaboration, and verbal communication. Graduates from every LEC major master these skills. We cultivate their willingness to learn new methodologies. They gain the confidence needed to face personal and professional challenges.
When one solution fails, they pivot to the next option. Group projects are a part of almost every class they take from day one. Our small size means we build deeper relationships with our students, and verbal conversations and interactions happen on every sidewalk, classroom, and hallway. LEC students are a name, never a number. Our sole focus is on student success.
As parents, you have spent years helping your child become their best self. We teach them how to take the next step.
