Small class size

Class sizes are small, professors are nice, enthusiastic, and approachable. Both the Lakehead campuses are compact. However, Lakehead is a medium-sized university, and it is a long drive from southern Ontario. Off -campus housing may be difficult to find, but the local transit system is pretty good.
