There were only 34 students when Lakeland College opened in 1913. Today the College has two campuses and over 7,000 full- and part-time students––but Lakeland is as tight-knit as ever. The classes are small, so instructors get to know their students––not just their names but also their wants, needs, hopes, and fears. They can sense when to challenge each student and when to cut them some slack. If students have questions or concerns, the door’s always open. Same goes for all the student services that are offered––from financial aid to peer tutoring, counselling to recreation.
