Textbooks, laptops, lectures, and labs are staples of the college experience.
The great gift of knowledge is pursued in every classroom on campus and researched in each stack of the library.The learning environment at LCCC is rich and rewarding.
Student Life is part of it. "The purpose of student life," said Program Coordinator Selina Gaddis, "is to expand the students total college experience."
Over 30 clubs and organizations are active at LCCC. Student run organizations put on the annual college picnic, sponsor a student leadership retreat and host international dinners. Student Life serves Thanksgiving meals to members of the community and creates quite a Trick-or-Treat experience for our neighboring youth. "Our ultimate goal," said Gaddis, "is to increase the involvement of students not only in events and activities but also in leadership development."
Student Senate encourages that growth. Marcus Madison is studying Urban Affairs at LCCC. He has plans to stay on campus and earn his bachelor’s degree from Cleveland State through LCCC’s University Partnership. He is the President of Student Senate. "We encourage students to come in and talk to us, help us plan events and serve on committees. Anyone can get involved," said Madison. "And one of the greatest satisfactions," he added, "is knowing that students are part of the process here at LCCC."
