College of Lake County

After a layoff from a job in corporate human resources, Aaron Wright of Round Lake Beach decided to enroll at the College of Lake County to study nursing. However, at age 36, he was concerned that he'd be the lone "older" student in a class full of 18-22-year-olds.

Instead of feeling out of place, Wright found a diverse mix of ages and life experiences. He also found a supportive atmosphere from both students and instructors. "CLC instructors are genuinely passionate about their work," he said, adding that the college offers "a great value" for getting a degree. Current tuition and fees are $112 per credit hour.
