Overview

Students Experience Culture and Outdoor Fun in Cleveland, Ohio

On the shores of Lake Erie, in the Great Lakes Region, students can discover Cleveland, a city of culture, outdoor fun, and professional sporting events. Located in Ohio, Cleveland is a city with a calendar of events to satisfy an array of interests.

Sports fans who love action will have their choice of professional baseball, basketball and football, plus hockey and soccer. The music lover will want to take a tour of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and its museum. Cleveland has a renowned orchestra, a theatre arts center with a full schedule of plays, a zoo with special events, and art museums with interactive exhibits.

During warm weather, there are lake sports and world-class sport fishing to welcome people outdoors. College students who visit Lake Erie can take to the water for kayaking, swimming, boating, jet-skiing and even parasailing! Ohio makes the most of winter with skating rinks and ice chutes for tobogganing. In the region, there are also areas for sledding and skiing. Natural adventures continue in the spring with hundreds of miles of bike trails.

Thirty miles east of Cleveland, students will find the town of Painesville, Ohio, and the campus of Lake Erie College. A highlight of this college is its nearby Equestrian Center, with acreage, barns, and an arena that support its equine studies program.

Established in 1856, Lake Erie College welcomes students as a private institution offering a range of undergraduate majors, as well as master's degrees in education and business administration. Founded on a liberal arts curriculum, the four-year, co-educational college now offers educational degree programs, concentrated study, internships, and study abroad.

Opportunities Abound in Fine Arts and Pre-Health Programs

At Lake Erie College, the fine arts program allows participants to follow their creative pursuits while also learning about other artistic disciplines. Students who study or major in fine arts will choose a concentration in a specific artistic area, such as music, theatre, dance or visual arts. They will attend small classes and take advantage of studios that cater to their concentration, as well as at least two other art disciplines.

Students of the fine arts utilize special facilities and performance settings for creative expression, such as a dance studio and art gallery. Lake Erie College emphasizes personalized attention, academic advising, and individualized instruction in its coursework. The faculty themselves are contributors to the artistic community. Study abroad experiences are available for those Lake Erie students majoring in fine arts and other courses of study.

A Bachelor of Science in pre-health is designed for students interested in a health-related career or in attending medical, pharmacy, dental or veterinary school. Those desiring a career in the medical field can choose pre-health as their degree program and take freshman biology, chemistry and math courses. After this first year, the student's eligibility to continue with this course of study will be evaluated.

Students who continue with the program will have access to the resources of a mentoring plan to help with graduate applications and admissions, if needed. The pre-health program features internship opportunities; advanced curriculum and computer facilities; and promising student acceptance rates into advanced degree programs in medicine, research, dentistry, and more. Pre-health careers also take students into other related fields that may not require an advanced degree, such as laboratory work or chemical sales.

A Robust Variety of Student Life Activities

Lake Erie College is a community rich with student life traditions like Mountain Day- an event that originated in 1903. Every year, students are excused from classes on Mountain Day to participate in recreational activities and service projects. To promote ongoing campus involvement, the student life office distributes a list of organizations, clubs, and teams recognized by its office and the student government.

These student organizations cover academic, environmental, sports, journalistic, and scholastic areas. There are active fraternities and sororities on campus too. Students meet with a representative from the student life office during the academic year to learn more about student organizations that interest them and to discuss their personal goals for a campus experience.

For new students, additional support can be found in campus services, such as the Student Success Center where students learn skills to realize academic potential. A Career Services center provides assistance with internships and local employment.

At Lake Erie College, an important part of many students' lives is physical activity and participation in athletics. This can entail scheduling time in the progressive athletics and wellness center, practicing with the baseball team, or cheerleading for the women's basketball team.

The college supports a lengthy roster of team sports for both men and women. The men's teams include baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, lacrosse, soccer, tennis, and track and field. Some of the women's teams are basketball, cross country, golf, lacrosse, soccer, softball, tennis, track and field, and volleyball. For sports events, the athletes and many of their fans don forest green and white, the colors of spirited Lake Erie College athletics.
