Changing Lives Campaign: Helping Students

The College of Lake County provides students with a life-changing path from dreams to bright futures.

At CLC, students find all the practical prerequisites for their success: wide-ranging academic options, tuition value, convenient locations and small classes taught by caring faculty.

More than that, they also find inspiration and motivation from faculty and staff with high expectations of them. Strong academics, combined with counseling, career advice, and learning support, take students from where they are toward where they want to go.

CLCs success in changing lives is proven by the success of its students. Some have gone on to top universities like Northwestern, the University of Illinois and even Harvard. CLC gave them their educational start on the path to becoming doctors, lawyers, teachers, professors and scientists. For others, the college provided the solid skills and education to start careers as nurses, paralegals, technicians, construction managers and many other occupations.
