Student/faculty ratio

At Lakeland University, students can feel at home in their wide-ranging, new experiences. Here, professors are more mentors than instructors. Staff is more family than co-workers. And fellow students are more friends than classmates. What makes us different? Lakeland is a welcoming, diverse and comfortable community; a nurturing place where students are never treated as numbers and are never lost in the crowd. Instead, we know our students by their first names, by their goals and by their dreams. Lakeland puts higher education within reach for hardworking students wherever they are in the world and in their personal journeys.



Teachers and coaches take the interest and the time to really know you, to challenge you and to prepare you to do great things. If you’re looking for a student-centered place where you can find the right major, the right career path and all the opportunities and support you need to excel, come to Lakeland and be a big fish. Be a Muskie.
