Why Lake Erie College?

One of the truly special elements of a Lake Erie College education is the close relationships students develop with faculty. Our small classes are rigorous and lead to engaged classroom discussions, hands on learning opportunities in studio courses, class-related field trips to local and regional cultural sites and a wealth of internship opportunities. But that's not all...

  • Gain Real-World Experience

    Our faculty are well known in their fields, as well, so our students get to study with the very best. Our students have held internships with some incredible organizations like...

    Because of those well-connected faculty who work closely with students to identify their career goals and intellectual passions, our students have pursued internships at major communication firms, in political field offices, at publishing houses, at local art studios, at TV networks, at local and state government agencies, at international heritage sites, at law firms, at historical societies and at social service community organizations.

  • Dream Big

    Students also have won national competitions with their work, most recently including a Graphic Design USA award, which recognizes outstanding achievement in the field of graphic design. It is the mentorship of our Lake Erie College faculty that enables our students to dream big dreams and set big goals, as we equip students with the knowledge and critical thinking skills to achieve their career and life ambitions. Guiding students in empowering themselves as they chart a life of personal and professional significance is a hallmark of a Lake Erie College education. All of that starts in the small classes and lifelong mentoring relationships that develop once a student joins our Storm family. At LEC, you will develop and provide outlets for skills in all modes of communication. Majoring in any one of these liberal arts education disciplines fosters the skills, attitudes and abilities necessary for personal and professional success.

We encourage intellectual openness, curiosity as well as a critical examination of both societal and personal values and beliefs.
