Eugene is a unique city known as the running capital of the U.S.A. in part because Nike was founded here. Students like the university town of Eugene because of the multitude of activities for college students, its safe environment, beautiful natural surroundings, fresh air, and shopping.
Oregon is well known for its tourism, wood products, sporting goods companies (Nike and Columbia Sportswear), and its high technology companies (Hynix Semiconductor of America, Oregon Scientific, and Tektronix).
International ESL Program
The International English as a Second Language Program at Lane Community College is also well known for its experienced instructors and high standards in preparing students for transferring to credit programs and meeting their individual academic goals. International students greatly appreciate the personal attention they receive from the faculty and staff.
Lane Community College offers high quality 2+2 transfer programs in fields such as Business, Engineering, Art, Journalism and many others as well as nationally accredited two-year degrees and certificate programs. Attending Lane and transferring to an Oregon Public University gives students the advantage of an extra year of Optional Practical Training, smaller classes which means more attention from faculty, and can save students about $30,000.
About Community Colleges
There are more than 1,200 community colleges in the United States which offer the first two years of study after high school. They represent over 40 percent of all higher education establishments in the United States. Most community colleges are public and are funded by local taxes. Many of them are urban and do not have dormitories on their campuses.
More than half the nation's undergraduates study at community colleges to complete their first two years of university study. They choose to study at community colleges because they can receive personal attention from their instructors, the tuition is less expensive, and the class sizes are smaller than in a university setting.
Community colleges usually have arrangements with universities so that the credits students earn during their two years of study at the community college are easily transferable to allow students to finish the last two years of their four-year Bachelor's degree at a university of their choice.
