What makes Lake Erie College a unique place?

  • The smaller class sizes enable far more interaction between faculty and students, more opportunities for one-on-one instruction, interactions and interventions if necessary, to assist a student who needs it. Students are never just a number here, and are never merely faces in a crowd.
