"More than 20,000 students choose Lake Land College each year to help them advance in their lives, careers, or educational goals. Lake Land College is a nationally recognized institution offering more than 140 degrees and certificates that get students ready to transfer or enter the workforce. Whether the goal is to pursue a degree, take a class, or participate in a community activity, students find our dedicated and friendly faculty and staff eager to serve them and partner with them in their pathway to success."
- Lake Land College saves almost $300,000 each year in energy costs through the "Envision. Educate. Engage. for a sustainable future" initiative, which began in 2008. The initiative provides educational opportunities for students studying green technologies and community members who are interested in learning how to live a more sustainable lifestyle. The campus boasts two, 100kW wind turbines, solar panel installations, and an underground geothermal loop and well system.
- The college works hard to establish community and industry partnerships throughout east central Illinois and the country. One program that relies on these partnerships is the John Deere tech program. Students sponsored by local John Deere dealers learn the full range of technological advances in agricultural mechanization, a curriculum that is collaboratively designed by John Deere and Lake Land College.
- Lake Land is a regional leader in training highly skilled medical professionals who are in high demand. These intensive programs include: associate degree in nursing, dental hygienists, paramedical services, massage therapist, physical therapy assistant, basic nursing assistant, and practical nurse. Students who graduate from Lake Land College consistently perform higher than the national average on all certification examinations upon completion of their program.
