  • We keep it personal and meaningful with a 15:1 student-to-teacher ratio. That adds up to countless ways to benefit from one-on-one faculty interactions, and encourages mentoring that lasts a lifetime.


  • Classes are carefully scheduled and students work closely with advisors to ensure the best possible scheduling options…all so you can graduate on your timeline.


  • As a Lakeland graduate, you can expect to move forward in your career. Graduates become stronger candidates for new positions and for promotions to higher levels of responsibility and compensation.
