“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."

Adrija Baltmiškytė: a Lithuanian high-school student for whom LCC is the second home

2021-07-27

Say hi to Adrija! While the Lithuanian high-school student isn’t an LCC student or a faculty member, she nevertheless has a deep history with LCC, coming to the university every summer for 8 years in a row.Adrija Baltmiškytė, 18, has been attending LCC International University’s summer English programs for eight years, an impressive record that most cannot claim to have achieved. Adrija is a Lithuanian citizen, from the town of Palanga. She was introduced to LCC by her mother, an English teacher, who had visited LCC during an educational trip and was impressed by the university. Adrija attended her first English camp at LCC when she was just ten years old. Adrija says how she felt nervous and apprehensive at first as she wasn’t very comfortable with her English and she didn’t know anything about LCC. At the end of the program, however, Adrija asked her mother to attend the camp again the next year. She attended the kids’ camps and then the teens’ camps for several summers and now she recently attended the Summer Language Institute (SLI). When asked why she kept returning to the English camps Adrija stated, “I felt like this was the community that I belong to ... people who come here accept me as who I am, don’t judge me or anything.” To Adrija, LCC is now a second home.This year, Adrija has also accepted a leadership position as a children’s camp coordinator, due to her familiarity with the program, and previous experience as a student leader. Adrija was happy to accept the challenge, and has learned a lot from the volunteer position. “It will help you to grow as a person,” Adrija states, “and you might find yourself somewhere you wouldn’t imagine yourself to be.” This experience has helped Adrija be more confident in her leadership abilities and become a more effective communicator, especially in a multicultural environment. Adrija expresses admiration for LCC because of a couple of key areas that she feels were unique to the environment fostered here. First of all, she was impressed with the open and welcoming community that allowed her to make connections with the other students and leaders in the camp, building relationships that she believes will last for a long time. Additionally, Adrija was impressed with how much she learned through these programs; first, a mastery of the English language, but also more confidence, better communication, and stronger leadership. This year Adrija is most impressed with the SLI teachers, who she says helped her have a much more fulfilling time in this program because of their open communication, their treatment of students as equal and important, and because they emphasized that everyone’s contributions are important and valuable. Because Adrija has had an amazing experience with LCC and the SLI program, she has become familiar with the programs that LCC offers to international students. Adrija says that she feels most drawn to International Relations & Development, as she loves to communicate with people from different cultures and backgrounds. However, she is also considering a degree in the pharmaceutical sciences after graduating from high school next year. Whatever is in her future, the memories from the Summer Language Institute will stay with Adrija for many years to come.

Viktorija Giedraitiene: International Partnerships, Education, and Culture

2021-07-20

Officially, Viktorija Giedraitiene is the Director of the Center for International Education (CIE) at LCC International University, but she likes to call herself a busy bee, who does a little bit of everything. She is also responsible for the smooth operation of the Study Abroad program, ensuring the greatest experiences for LCC students, and others coming from all around the world. Viktorija is an LCC alumna and has been with LCC for 8 years as an employee. As we look into her vast working experience, we discussed the benefits of cultural exchange, different perspectives on institutional partnerships, and how Viktorija does it all.It’s easy to notice Viktorija’s charm and positiveness once you get a chance to talk to her. The first time she heard about LCC International University was in high school, a few decades ago. Although studies in Klaipeda were never in her plans, as she reminisces on her experiences, Viktorija wouldn’t have changed it for anything. “It was a very progressive institution with a vision. My passion for international backgrounds and desire for education led me to LCC,” shared Giedraitiene. Throughout the studies, the student was involved in every possible leadership position: First Year Seminar, Study Abroad, Spiritual Life, and kept herself busy on top of her studies. In the 2000s the university experience was slightly different, as the institution was quite young. For example, the Michaelsen Center was built during Viktorija’s first year of study. She was always drawn to multiculturalism, international experiences, diversity, and that was exactly what made her choose to pursue a degree at LCC.After graduation from LCC, Viktorija relocated to continue her academic journey in the United Kingdom and pursued a postgraduate degree at Brighton University. During that time, Viktorija had a chance to work in an international company as an administrative assistant, later moving to a personal assistant position. The experience gained in these backgrounds enriched Viktorija’s expertise and paved a path to climb the career ladder in further positions. She has extensive experience in the tourism sector, also working in Klaipeda, creating itineraries for the tourists, and training guides in Lithuania.This alumna, who returned to LCC as an employee, kick-started her career as an Experience Coordinator and was responsible for the student experience of students who came from North America to Lithuania with the Study Abroad program. Viktorija was planning and leading the trips in Lithuania, the Baltic States region, and also a semester break in Russia. After working three years as an Experience Coordinator, Viktorija made a smooth transition to her current position at LCC. As the Director of the Centre for International Education (CIE), she oversees all exchange programs, including Erasmus, International Exchange, and Study Abroad. When asked about her day-to-day responsibilities, Viktorija laughs saying she does a little bit of everything at the office, but always tries to find balance. Ranging from morning meetings, answering emails to promoting exchange opportunities, and establishing partnerships with partner institutions worldwide. “In normal circumstances, there would be around five summer groups from visiting partner institutions, and we would be out and about exploring, and I would not even see my co-workers sometimes even for five weeks or so. We like to joke that the CIE office is slowly becoming a traveling agency,” laughed Viktorija. The pandemic has affected the operation of the programs significantly, but Viktorija mentions that in the last Fall and Spring semesters, they managed to welcome students from European partner institutions.Viktorija highlighted the importance and benefits of collaboration between partner institutions. She emphasized that having a variety of institutions as partners, from different countries, enables students to have valuable experiences, to explore cultures and education models. “These types of partnerships empower and provide valuable connections in higher education. We have over 70 partnerships worldwide, and we’re motivated to expand,” commented Viktorija. Part of the process to establish new partnerships is participation in International Conferences, and alongside her teammates, Viktorija represents LCC to potential collaborators. “LCC offers a liberal arts education model, which is different from other universities in Lithuania, so it’s a unique feature to gain further dialogue with partners.” At LCC, foreign students benefit from a diverse environment, great quality classes in English, native English-speaking staff and faculty, and receive full support from our university. International recognition and networking play a big part in the partnerships and are a getaway to make new connections.Viktorija hopes that in the upcoming academic year, life will get back to normal or the new normal. “Covid pandemic added many new challenges, but the CIE office hopes to welcome more students from our partners in Asia, North America, and Europe, and help them experience the best time at LCC. We are ready to restart.”As the pandemic is slowly easing down, Viktorija’s plans evolve only around a well-deserved vacation. “I never thought I would come back to LCC as an employee, but here I am, happy and hopeful for the future.”
