LCCC understands the impact of the coronavirus may reach other areas of students’ lives, and are here to help. The Advocacy and Resource Center (ARC) can help students to access food, counseling, financial, and other resources during this time. Students may submit a Request for Help Form to the ARC remotely, and a member of the ARC team will reach out to connect you to services that can help.
