Here’s what students who have taken the course have to say:

  • This is a great class for adult students returning to college to learn how to get back into the college mode.
  • I think the course will be an asset for my future courses.
  • The class helped me to figure out the kind of learner that I am. [It] helps a student to realize their goals and better ways to achieve them.
  • An excellent tool for adults new to Lewis. Provided information on resources that Lewis offers but also resources that an individual may not know they are capable of doing themselves.
  • Class was always interesting and fun! I recommend this class for everyone! It is a great course for adults returning to college.

    I live in New Lenox near I-80, and would be able to get to the Tinley location in roughly 30 minutes. I am wondering if it would be possible to schedule an appointment with an academic advisor.
