Campus resources highlighted during Welcome Week
More than 20 LCC organizations, clubs and departments handed out brochures, candy and free supplies to students on Aug. 26 along Washington Square Mall.
The Campus Resource and Organization Fair was a part of LCC’s annual Welcome Week.
Student Life Coordinator Patti Ayers said the fair brought attention to many of the 30 registered organizations on campus.
“Welcome Week is important because it helps get students acclimated to a new campus and it is also an opportunity for them to learn what and where resources are on campus,” Ayers said.
According to Ayers the fair was a great way for students to see what LCC has to offer.
“A lot of students are surprised when they realize all of the opportunities for them to get involved and engaged with on campus,” Ayers said.
“Students who are more engaged on campus tend to do better in their classes here,” Ayers added. “That is why I encourage students to participate in the many opportunities available on campus.”
One of the clubs available to students is the LCC Cheer Team. Member Taryn Clapsaddle said Welcome Week helped them promote their club to students.
“The LCC Cheer Team will include cheering at all the basketball games as well as participating in other cheer events,” Clapsaddle said. “We are just like your high school cheer team, but in college … If a student wants to have fun and hang out with awesome people they should sign up.”
Student Tisha Monroe said she enjoyed seeing what organizations are available at the resource fair.
“I feel like there is so much going on at LCC that I didn’t know about before,” Monroe said. “I am new to LCC and had no idea LCC had a radio station, cheer team or even a newspaper. It all is very exciting.”
