“Everyone truly wants you to succeed”

"The most valuable lesson I learned at LCC is that people are the most valuable asset in every organization. Having talked to many alumni, they always said that people are what creates the real LCC experience, and now looking back, I couldn’t agree more. It is our amazing staff and faculty who share common values and help us grow not only as professionals but also individuals, and it is the students who later become your second family. It has taught me to care about each person I work or interact with. I believe that LCC is the place where you can create the experience you want. You can always find the right people to help you implement even the craziest idea or project and also find the resources to get it done. Appreciate that at LCC everyone truly wants you to succeed."

Elizaveta Velichko from Belarus studies Law and English language and literature


Elizaveta Velichko is from Grodno, Belarus. She comes from a large family of three brothers and seven foster siblings, four of which are grown and now live on their own already. Elizaveta is currently an English Language and Literature student at LCC. Interestingly though, this is not her first year in Lithuania, and LCC is not her first university.When she graduated from high school in Belarus, Elizaveta thought that she wanted to be a lawyer. She finished college in Belarus but also wanted to deepen her knowledge, so she looked for other educational institutions. First, she thought of staying in Belarus but looked up universities abroad and found the European Humanitarian University located in Vilnius. She has been studying International Law there and will receive her Master’s degree at the end of this academic year.Elizaveta first heard of LCC when she was still studying in Belarus. When she read about LCC, she was drawn to LCC for its Christian and North American style education. However, she wanted to be a lawyer, and since LCC did not provide this specific program, she initially dismissed it as an option.Some time ago, she was visiting Klaipėda and realized how much she enjoyed this city. She thought it would be lovely to study and live in a place so close to the sea. At that moment, she remembered LCC. This was last summer, while she was also deciding to change her major. She reached out to the admissions team, asking if she could apply, and fortunately, she was not too late. When she was a little girl, Elizaveta wanted to be an interpreter. She loved the whole concept and talking to people in general. She chose to study at LCC and become an English major because of this longtime dream. She anticipates that LCC will prepare her well for this role. For most students at LCC, this is their first university or even their first time living abroad. Not so for Elizaveta. She has experienced Lithuanian culture while studying at the European Humanitarian University in Vilnius and living in the capital city. She had spent a year and a half in Vilnius before returning to Belarus in the Spring of 2020 because of the initial quarantine. Elizaveta enjoyed Vilnius. She says that “it was love at first sight.” She liked the old town, the architecture, and the capital ‘vibe’ yet, she also finds that she likes Klaipėda old town, too. She is now quite pleased to be in Klaipėda, in a much quieter atmosphere. Elizaveta says what she likes most about Lithuania, in general, is the people. Lithuanians seem much different than Belarusians in and around their culture. For instance, she mentioned that Lithuanians sitting on the grass in the city center seems normal, but in Belarus, it might not always be acceptable.When talking about the differences between LCC and the other two schools Elizaveta attended, she says that here at LCC, the professors are more thoughtful towards the students.She has seen how professors try to get to know everyone personally or remember at least one thing about each student. She adds another difference. At LCC, there are many assignments. Students need to check Moodle every day to not miss anything. This aspect made her first month at LCC more difficult as she was not used to that in college in Belarus or at the university in Vilnius. “It’s not harder, but it’s different. You need to get used to it.” Elizaveta also highlights that the community at LCC feels much closer than in other places, “...maybe because of so many events and interactions that are happening.” She notes that it also might be because of LCC’s international aspect - everyone interacts differently in this diverse community, it’s part of LCC’s identity.Being a student at European Humanities University gave Elizaveta a chance to go to Israel with the Erasmus program. Last fall, she got to go and study in one of the world’s top 100 best-ranked universities. Elizaveta jokes that she had to learn how to live because it was not the same as studying and living in Lithuania. Israel being so much further away from Belarus made living there even more challenging for her. She also had to find a local apartment in Israel to live in because they did not have space for her in the dorm. Also apart from knowing just a few Hebrew words, she did not know the language upon arrival. The whole experience helped to shape her in many new ways.During her free time, Elizaveta likes to read books. Although her English is sufficient, she has not dared to read some books in their original English language. That is one of the things on her bucket list to try. Her favorite books are the “Chronicles of Narnia.” She says, “I read them maybe twelve times in my native language. But I still have not read them in English, so that is my goal for next year.” She likes the message of the books and how well they were written. As an English major, she feels that it’s only right to now read the books in English.Finally, in honor of the 30th anniversary of LCC International University, Elizaveta would like to wish LCC to be an inspiring place to others, much like it is to her. She wishes that more people would hear about this university and would be interested to come.Pictures are taken from Elizaveta's personal archive.

Alisa Paivina: Business Administration alumna on female leadership


A couple of weeks ago, we started our “Coffee with Alumni” webinar series. Our first guest this fall was Alisa Paivina, LCC Class of 2007. She has achieved great success as a female leader, working for DFDS since 2014, in a traditionally male-dominant industry. She started in sales, and now she is the Commercial Director of the Baltic’s freight agencies in Klaipeda and Riga.At LCC, she studied International Business Administration. After graduation, she started her first job at a Russian fishing company as an office administrator. She took this job, keeping in mind a piece of advice that her professor had said, to work and gain experience in her field for a couple of years and then go into master’s studies. She then would have a better understanding of what she likes, what she is good at, and which areas she would like to improve.After two years, Alisa started studying Coastal Marine Resource Management at a university in the U.K. During her studies, she learned that company profit should not be the main goal or the only focus. Sustainability should also be an essential factor for fishing companies.After her studies in the U.K., she went to Brussels and worked in the European Commission for a while. However, soon she realized that politics was not the right path for her. Led by her desire to live in a warm climate where she could learn a new language, she wound up in Portugal, where she stayed for seven years. There she started her own business related to the fishing industry.She moved back to Lithuania and unexpectedly landed a new job at DFDS. She started as a Sales Manager, but not long after, started working as the General Manager and then as a Commercial Director. Among six managers at her job, Alisa is the only female.Alisa treasures her experiences and studies at LCC in her heart. Looking back to her years here, she states,“Now I see how this university truly transforms people. I can see it right away when I go somewhere, and I know that when I am talking with people. ‘Okay, this person seems like they have graduated from LCC.’ They have this DNA, which is totally different.”She adds, “It is definitely this personality transformation that is something more important to me than knowledge. You can build up knowledge… but if the person has knowledge but no character behind it or has no ethics whatsoever… well, LCC is really good at bringing all of it.”Click here to listen to the complete webinar to hear more about Alisa’s career development and success and what LCC means to her.
