Nothing brings college students together like free food, games, prizes and great music.
Welcome Week events at LCC started on Thursday, Aug. 22 and ended on Friday, Aug. 30.
Free food and beverages were served all week long, including Kona Shaved Ice, popcorn and donuts. Activities included petting therapy dogs, student employment fair, club fair and school supply giveaways.
The real star event of the week was “Party with the Prez – Party All Knight.” LCC President Brent Knight joined the LCC students on Wednesday, Aug. 28 for an afternoon of free food, raffle prizes, music and games.
Knight took part in playing musical chairs with a few students, but got knocked out in the second round.
Many students jammed out to the live band, “The Hot Mess,” while others ate cotton candy, shaved ice, pizza and ice cream.
Others played games including Jenga and Connect Four and some enjoyed the sunny day by sitting and talking with new and old friends.
