Lane college is a unique school. Just like many other colleges alike they all have a common core of pros and cons. At first Lane was not my ideal school, however because of it being a small liberal arts school it has opened many opportunities for me to grow as a an individual and be able to learn more about myself and my surroundings. Regardless of the negative the school may have it fuels my drive to focus on the positive and turning the negative into a vantage point to where it better suits my goals and achievements with my peers.

I love Lane College and it is my second home. If it was not for Lane I don't know where I would be. To be a young black woman who has lived in Milwaukee Wisconsin her whole life to choose to go to school 10+ hours away from home was a big deal. It stressed my parents out but after keeping my GPA above a 3.0 they knew that I had made that right decision. Lane College is really the best thing that has happened to me.

Natrurell

The reason why Lane College doesn't have a good overall rating is because the horrifying on campus living conditions, the staff lack creativity and ambition, and the students lack diversity. If the school had up to date textbooks, a high career placement rate, and was powered by renewable resources, such as; solar panels and windmills. Then, it would be a desired destination like other Historic Black Colleges/ Universities.

Lane college is a good school. I love the way the faculty are there no matter what. There are rarely any fight or other things to make you feel unsafe. The student body are great when it comes to coming together as a whole. I love my lane college dragons!
