My adventure as an International student at Lake Land College started in August of 2010.  I still remember the first day as if it's just been yesterday: It was very overwhelming to not only be so far away from home and family, but also to walk around a college campus that I was not familiar with. 

Almost 2 years later, I have accomplished more than I could have ever dreamed of, thanks to Lake Land College: After completing a year of general education courses towards my Nursing major, I was finally admitted to Lake Land's Nursing Program.

Until then, I had only heard about the excellent, yet very challenging program. Once I started the actual nursing classes, I realized that this was more difficult than I could have imagined. But it is also the best experience to be around people who have the same career goals. My nursing instructors are truly amazing and helped me throughout the first year.
