Lakeland College offers a variety of on-campus living facilities. Seven traditional residence halls are available for all resident students. The Lakeland College suites are available to juniors, seniors, or those students 21 or older. The honor apartments are available to upper-class students with a GPA of 2.5 or higher. The seven traditional residence halls are staffed with a professional hall director and four student resident assistants. The suites are staffed with two hall directors and the apartments are staffed with one upper-class student apartment manager.
Each room in the residence hall accommodates one or two students and is furnished with beds, dressers, curtains, dishes, carpet, smoke detector, and lights. Students need only to provide their own sheets, blankets, towels, and personal effects. Many international students purchase these necessary items after they arrive on campus. All undergraduate international students, 21 years old or younger (except those living with parents) are required to live in college residence halls. Students enrolled in the ELI program are required to live on campus for the entire period of their ELI enrollment. For detailed information, please refer to the Resident Hall Agreement.
Internet Access in All Residence Halls
At the time of registration you may apply for your free Lakeland College e-mail address. You can use computers in the Library, Campus Center, Old Main Learning Center, Laun Center, Chase Center and lounges of residence halls for an easy and free access to the Internet. Lakeland College is rated as one of the "most wired colleges" in the nation. In addition, there is an access port for Internet access supplied in each residence hall room for your unlimited use for US$ 50 per semester if you have a personal computer. For more information, you may contact our Information Technology Department after your arrival.
All students new to Lakeland must file a Health Assessment form. This form will be mailed to you with your housing application and needs to be sent to the Health Center when completed. You should have a physical examination and have the form filled out in your country. A TB skin test or Chest X-ray for Tuberculosis (TB) test is required. The test has to be taken within 3 months before arriving in the United States. The Campus Health and Counseling Service treats minor illness or injury, provides referrals to doctors, gives special assistance for counseling, and provides health information. These services are available to students free of charge. Students who require the services of doctors, however, will be required to pay for these services unless they are paid by medical insurance. For this reason, all international students are required to obtain medical insurance from Lakeland College. You are required to fill out the proper forms to apply for this insurance after you arrive at Lakeland.
International Student Orientation and Advising
Each semester, shortly before the general orientation for all new students, the International Student Office conducts a special orientation program for new international students. During this orientation, you will take part in programs designed to help you adjust to life on campus and to familiarize you with the community and the services provided by the college. This special orientation is required for all new international students.
Over 15% of the Lakeland College resident student population is from abroad. International students add a special dimension to campus life and give everyone the opportunity to experience many different cultures. Lakeland assists international students with legal forms, information concerning the U.S. Bureau of Citizen and Immigration Services, Department of Homeland Security, and other federal and state government agencies. Many people will help make you comfortable in your new home at Lakeland. The International Student Office is one of the departments at Lakeland that helps ease the transition from life in your home country to the culture and environment of the United States.
Students who do not have vehicles on campus may take advantage of Lakeland's shuttle service. A Lakeland van makes regular trips from the Campus Center into Sheboygan and surrounding communities at various times throughout the day by appointment. The shuttle runs during the academic year and throughout the summer, unless a campus vehicle is not available or weather does not permit. It runs from 7:00 am-10:00 pm, Monday through Friday, and from 12 noon-5:00 pm on Saturday and Sunday. Students who want to use the service are encouraged to make a reservation as far in advance as possible. Please call the shuttle office, ext. 1321, or the driver's cell phone at 920-627-0882 to make all arrangements.
If you need to go to something other than what is listed here, you should just ask and we still might be able to work something out, depending upon the feasibility and logistics of the request.
The Campus Shop, located on the first floor of the Laun Center, is the source for textbooks, school supplies and Lakeland imprinted apparel and giftware. A variety of personal items are also sold. Purchases may be made by cash, check, Visa, Master Card, American Express or Discover. The Campus Shop is open Monday through Friday, 7:45 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and on certain special event Saturdays.
Friendship Program with American Families
The primary purpose of this program is to identify an American family for you to make friendship with and to provide you with the opportunities to learn about American culture and customs, improve their English language skills, and increase interaction with the local community. This may involve occasionally sharing a meal, inviting you to spend an evening in the family's home, being available to answer questions about American culture, and/or taking you to a school play, church program, or community activity.
