“CLC has absolutely played a role in changing my educational and career goals. I had space to explore different fields and talk to many knowledgeable people about careers and opportunities.”
“I loved my education courses. The professors bring a lot of experiences into their classrooms, and everything we learn builds from class to class.”
“I have enjoyed all the instructors in the horticulture department, especially their expertise and practical work experiences. All the classes that I have taken are pertinent to my career choice.”
“Even if money hadn’t been an issue for me, I think CLC still would have been the right decision for me because of the wonderful things that I took with me from the college.”
“Really get to know your professors; they are the ones who will write you a letter of recommendation in a few years, so keep in touch with them.”
“College is the best decision I ever made. As a senior at Zion-Benton High School, I received a scholarship to CLC. I thought, “This is an opportunity.””

“There is something about CLC’s environment and the professors that makes your experience very enjoyable and helps you to do well academically.”
“The course prepared me for a veterinary assistant job and the externship was a great part of the reason I felt prepared.”
“CLC is a melting pot; a microcosm of America. The students come from so many different backgrounds and contexts, that you learn almost as much from your classmates as you do from your courses.”
