LOWER COLUMBIA COLLEGE IS A GREAT COMMUNITY COLLEGE. NOT ONLY CAN YOU GET AN AA, OR TRANSFER DEGREE, BUT THEY ALSO OFFER SOME BACHELOR DEGREES. THEY HAVE MANY MAJORS TO PICK FROM AND ARE PRETTY INEXPENSIVE COMPARED TO FOUR-YEAR UNIVERSITIES CLOSE BY.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Lower Columbia College is a great place to start one's higher education. It allows students to complete core classes and learn valuable life skills in a less stressful environment than they would be exposed to were they to attend a four-year college straight out of high school. Most of the professors care deeply about the students and go out of their way to ensure each student is getting what they need out of their classes, and the sense of community the college provides is strong without being overwhelming.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Lower Columbia College is an amazing junior college. I would recommend it to anyone. Every instructor I have had, so far, has been thorough and I learn something every time I walk into a lecture hall. The teachers are real people and they do not pretend to know something that they are not 100% certain of.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Lower Columbia College is the highlight of Cowlitz County. As a community we are very divisive, but as a college we all come together to celebrate academics. We have a thriving theatre department, and we even have the Terry Reiniger Memorial Drama Scholarship, which is a performing arts scholarship that I was the lucky recipient of in the 2017-2018 school year.

It is a nice school but some of the student services are poorly run. There are some really great teachers though. The career center that they offer is great. Financial aid office is terrible so is the Vice presidents of students it is really bad and seem unconcerned about its students

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have been attending Lower Columbia College since 2014. I graduated with my Associates degree in Psychology, but am now working on a biology degree. I have worked on campus, was involved in clubs, and spent many hours in study groups and studying solo. I am going to asses LCC in 5 areas: Advising, class size, professors, campus, and food. Advising: When I first started I was not given an advisor, so the first few quarters of classes that I had taken were me guessing what I needed in order to get my degree. After I got my advisor I found that many classes I had taken I did not need for my degree. I decided I wanted to go into psychiatry, which is a job that requires med school, and I was advised to not take any of the medical classes and stick with the humanities. Not taking the sequences like chemistry, biology, and physics really hurt me. I need two years of chemistry, a year of biology, and a year of physics to get into med school, but I have not taken any of those classes due to being advised not to. Now, it is going to take me an additional year to get my bachelors degree. Class size: The class size is usually fairly small. Classes are typically around 20-25 students unless they are science courses like biology and chemistry which are in the lecture halls with around 40-60 students. The class size is still much smaller than what would be seen at most universities. Professors: Every professor on campus has designated office hours for students where they welcome them warmly into their offices and help with any questions. I never came across any professors who rushed office visits or felt as if it were inconvenient. Some professors work better for certain learning styles and abilities. There are some professors that are very laid back and have no real structure to their classes and then there are the professors that are 100% behind the book. Campus: The campus is very nice. Lower Columbia College is very active in improving and beautifying. There is a brand new Health and Science Building that is erupt with lecture halls, lots of natural light, and many new clean lab rooms. The Rose Center for the Arts is also an extremely nice building. The Rose center has theaters, rooms to record music, art galleries, and more. This past year there has been construction on the Main building to make it improve the space and bring more revenue to the school (nicer buildings generate more income). The library is a wonderful and academic space. In the Library is the tutoring center (learning commons), eLearning center (computer and tech help), and the circulation desk (where books are checked out). The services in the library are very beneficial to the students. There are plenty of places to study including white board tables, a sound proof room, and couches upstairs. The campus itself is small, but beautiful with flowering dogwood in spring and the large maple trees in the grass areas between the buildings. In the summer you are able to lounge out on the grass, or sit next to the garden and help yourself to whatever fresh fruits and vegetables are growing there. The food: This year there has been trouble in the LCC’s kitchen “Fork and Flame” due to the understaffing and lack of training for the employees. I have been going to LCC since 2014 and I have seen a huge decline in the quality of the food as well as a price increase. There are many things on the menu that are worth the money, like massive $6 omelets and sandwiches, but much of it is overpriced and prepared poorly. I have seen kitchen staff make food with dirty gloves and under-cook many food items that should be cooked all the way through.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a good campus, with plenty of people who are very willing to help confused students. Many of the professors will be very happy to help if you show that you are interested and tried to learn on your own. There are free tutoring services offered in the library, which can be helpful.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Lower Columbia college is a small community college but big enough to meet new people. I think our professors are overall average. In the financial aid aspect I think it could improve. Lcc has great potential, especially in health science. Our nursing program is one of the best and very competitive.
