Every year LCC celebrates Welcome Week with a “Party with the Prez.” There is live music, free food and prizes given away.
This year’s party will take place Friday, Aug. 21 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. It is going to look different this year, as it will be held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Yes, it’s a ‘Party with the Prez: Online Edition,’” said Layne Ingram, LCC executive office special project coordinator. “We won’t have the free food or live band, but we will still be giving out great prizes, and students will have a chance to ask questions and interact/connect with Dr. (Steve) Robinson.”
The prizes will consist of a $1,000 scholarship for students enrolled in 12 credits or more, with no previous college credit; three MBS book vouchers for $100, $150 and $250; and an Amazon and Target gift card worth $25 each.
“The fall semester is here … get to know our new president,” Ingram said. “The fun starts at 11:30 am and will be streamed live to Facebook. Don’t miss this chance to ask the president questions, play games and enter to win one of six awesome prizes.”
The event will be streamed live at facebook.com/lccstars. Students can enter the prize giveaway by filling out the form at this link https://promosimple.com/ps/1012b/2020-party-with-the-prez-online-edition.
