    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    The course is required for a degree, however this will be one of the most applicable classes to your education in and outside of school. You learn essential skills that will help you to obtain a job and stay a successful student.

    This courses introduces a number of aspects to college and career life. Most importantly you will create a resume. You will further explore the resources the campus provides for students such as the wellness center, the food pantry, and the health clinic. This is the class you wish you had in high school. It teaches financial literacy, budgeting and simply how to interact with fellow students and staff.

    Pay attention to this class. To many students it is a silly requirement that may seem redundant or dry at times. The information you gain in this class with be crucial as you independently navigate your way to other colleges and the work force.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for many reasons, however, the most important being that it is a required course to graduate. The COLS course at LCCC has a wealth of information to offer if you allow it to really soak in. It can really prepare some students for a more successful college career overall, and allows students to communicate with each other better. Because it is a required course, you have to meet some people in your shoes or at least similar ones!

    Course highlights:

    When I showed up to COLS the first night of class, I listened to the lecture and thought, "Wow, this is a joke. I've already lived enough life and I know how to manage my time and be successful." Throughout the course, however, I have found a lot about myself, my habits, and an idea of what needs to change and how I need to go about that change.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    While COLS is generally considered LCCC's "Easy A course", don't think you can just breeze through it. If you don't manage your time wisely (especially if you are in the hybrid class), you will fall behind and end up with a grade you could've greatly improved. The coursework is not hard, it's just a commitment of time and trying to have a growth mindset rather than an "I know it all" attitude.
