Welcome Week festivities begin today

Welcome back! LCC is kicking off the year with a week of activities, food and additional support for students. Welcome Week begins today and runs until Friday, Aug. 30. Every day is packed with events and giveaways for students, including this year’s marquee events:

  • Party with the Prez – Party All Knight, 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 28, on the Mall. President Brent Knight will be on hand for fun in the middle of campus. Students can play games, win prizes, challenge President Knight in musical chairs and more!
  • Campus Resource and Student Organization Fair, 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 29, on the Mall. More than 40 areas from around the college will attend to help students discover clubs, organizations and resources to enhance their LCC experience.

The Welcome Week fun isn’t limited to the Downtown Campus. West Campus, LCC East, the Livingston County Center and the Aviation Center will all offer snacks and social events. To accommodate their many late-start students, East Campus and the Livingston Center will host Welcome Week Monday, Sept. 9-Friday, Sept. 13.
 
As a reminder, please note Welcome Week freebies and food are primarily to give our students a great start to the year. While employees are welcome to participate in events and snag a snack or two along the way, please be mindful supplies can run out and students hurrying between classes do not always have time to wait in a long line of employees to get some food.
 
Thank you to our LCC employee volunteers who will be on hand in blue T-shirts to help students find parking and locate classrooms. Additionally, thank you to those unable to volunteer because you will spend the week teaching or otherwise helping students. The start of the semester could not go smoothly without you!
