Lakeland is constantly innovating to create ways for students to access their education. Lakeland’s Cooperative Education program offers a unique way to earn a bachelor’s degree. LU students work in full- or part-time positions for partner companies, giving them professional work experience and wages and scholarship dollars to reduce or eliminate post-graduation debt. Lakeland offers access to online courses for students who need more flexibility due to a full schedule with work and co-curriculars. Lakeland offers students access to dozens of organizations and athletic teams, including our new esports program, led by Coach Ahman Green. Go Muskies!



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.
