“Fantastic opportunities for the motivated”

"At the end of my freshman year, I received a President's Leadership Scholarship that will cover 100% of my tuition for my second, third and fourth years of studies. I am able to pay for living expenses by working in summers. LCC has an abundance of opportunities for motivated students who are in need of help."
