    Pros

    The students are interested in learning to advance their careers, and the instructors care about these interests and provide an excellent environment for the students.

    Cons

    There is nothing really to say that is negative. The only thing that comes to mind is the distance LGCC is from my own home. However, LGCC is still a simple commute.

    Advice to Management

    None
