From the President

Tradition and Transformation.

Lake Erie College, since its founding over 150 years ago, has been a strong, solid and respected leader in liberal arts education. From its early days as a female seminary in the 1800s, through the turn of the century and its institution-changing decision to become coeducational in the 1980s, the College has remained true to its three tenets of Excellence, Tradition and Service. Today, we are proud to be the academic home to 1200 students engaging in 37 majors, 23 NCAA Division II athletic teams and 29 student organizations.

Lake Erie College not only prepares students for their careers, but also allows opportunity for enrichment and empowerment through growth and exploration. The depth and breadth of our curriculum is what has earned us accolades as one of the "Best Colleges in the Midwest" by The Princeton Review, recognition as a College of Distinction and rated by US News and World Report.

We continue to invest in our students and their experience. Our recent multi-million dollar renovation of the Austin Hall of Science to become one of the area's comprehensive state-of-the-art laboratory facilities will allow students to discover the pre-health majors and be challenged through the sciences. Looking ahead, we continue our push toward excellence with the planning of a new library and technology learning center. The campus, featuring the historic beauty of Georgian architecture and an aesthetically relaxing environment, is certain to make students and their families feel at home.

I invite you to explore Lake Erie College and welcome you to our campus.
