- Today the campus of LCCC is an attractive site, nestled in one hundred acres of southern pines, with over twenty-five modern buildings surrounded by crepe myrtle and azalea shrubbery. The College offers outstanding programs in the liberal arts and sciences. A significant number of students who begin their college career in these programs earn associate degrees, and then successfully transfer to senior institutions where they maintain superior records when compared to their university counterparts. The College also offers outstanding opportunities in such diverse vocational programs as business administration, computer programming, forestry, golf course operations, irrigation technology, landscape technology, cosmetology, and many more. The College provides comprehensive training in several allied health fields such as registered nursing, practical nursing, emergency medical services, medical laboratory technology, and others. Each year the College maintains the search for excellence by offering new programs, which meet the needs of its district. Although Lake City Community College is only one of two community colleges in the state to offer residential facilities, it is not uncommon for students to commute up to 50 miles one way to attend classes. The College's district encompasses five North Florida counties: Baker, Columbia, Dixie, Gilchrist, and Union. This 2,683 square mile district is an area twice the size of Rhode Island. The region around the College is commonly referred to as Florida's Crown. Lake City is situated midway between the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico. The geographic area around the College would generally be considered rural. The moderate climate, hospitality of the community, and beauty of the adjacent recreational areas draw visitors and newcomers from around the world. The College itself is located approximately six miles east on Highway 90 from downtown Lake City, Florida, by the airport. Lake City Community College offers you a resource in the staff, solid academic programs, a variety of college activities, new technology and newly renovated buildings, facilities and dorms.
