Everyone welcome at 8th annual Veterans Memorial Induction Ceremony

LCC will induct three local servicemen and women into its Veterans Memorial Friday, Nov. 10.

The memorial is an interactive exhibit housed in the HHS Building designed to honor Michigan veterans, especially those from Ingham, Eaton and Clinton counties. The eighth annual induction will be held at noon Nov. 10 in the HHS Atrium. Lunch will follow.

This year’s inductees include World War II veteran U.S. Army Air Force Sergeant Charles R. Stults of Charlotte, World War II veteran U.S. Army 1st Lieutenant Winifred J. Bearup of Lansing, and Civil War casualty 3rd Michigan Volunteer Infantry Sergeant Charles T. Foster of Lansing. Please join us in honoring their service.

Improve your time management skills to get more done with a time management workshop hosted by the One Book One LCC committee.

One Book One LCC is a shared community reading experience that encourages students and employees to engage in special events, discussions and collegewide conversations surrounding a thought-provoking common read. The 2017-18 selection is “Outliers,” by Malcolm Gladwell. The book examines the stories of people of inordinate success, and the roles practice and culture play in their achievements.

The event will be held 10-11 a.m. Nov. 7-8 in the Centre for Engaged Inclusion. You can attend whichever day works in your schedule. You do not need to have read “Outliers” to attend.

Speed networking event available Oct. 27 to IT students

LCC’s IT Speed Networking’s seventh annual event will be held noon-2:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 27, at West Campus. There is a limit of 60 students for this event, so register today.

This event is exactly what it sounds like. IT Speed Networking provides current LCC IT students the opportunity to connect with professionals from the Greater Lansing area with an interest in information technology (IT employees and other appropriate personnel such as HR recruiters that hire for IT positions). It is fast-paced, fun and geared toward companies and students alike. Students will speak to six or seven company representatives during the event, spending five minutes at a time with a company representative and then rotating to speak with someone else. Last year, around 45 IT professionals attended this event.

Event Schedule:

  • Noon-12:45 p.m.  Check-in & Mixer (Light lunch provided)
  • 12:45-12:55 p.m.  Introduction & Instructions
  • 1-2:30 p.m.    Speed Networking

To be eligible to attend the IT Speed Networking event, you must be in an LCC CIT or CS curriculum and are required to register for and attend a 15 minute information prep-session two weeks prior to the event. Please register ASAP – last year the event filled quickly and had a wait list.

Even though this is a networking event, every year employers meet students and decide to do a follow-up interview and hire them. This is not a requirement by any means, just an added bonus for those companies and students who may be interested!
