Although Central Illinois is experiencing record breaking cold, area colleges are preparing for their spring semester, starting in January for many schools. Chris Strohl with Lake Land College in Mattoon says it's not too late to sign up for classes which begin at Lake Land on January 8th.
Strohl says there are a number of options for students who are looking to take classes, wether you're looking to come back as a full time or part time student.
According to Strohl, only taking one or two classes at a time can make a lot of sense for students looking to come back to the classroom.
Lake Land offers a number of educational options for students to help fit into those student's schedules, whether it's online, part time, or for students looking to complete their GED.
Find out more about the educational opportunities at Lake Land College by visiting them online at LakeLandCollege.edu, or calling their office at 234-5253.
