"The most transformative years of my life" - Interview with Evianda Noka, Class of 2021

2023-06-06

Meet Evianda Noka from Albania, who graduated from LCC International University in 2021 with a degree in Contemporary Communication. Evianda describes her four years at LCC as the most transformative years of her life. So, what is it that made her studies at LCC so special? We recently sat down with Evianda to reflect on her time at LCC and how this education impacted her life post-graduation. 2017 was the year when Evianda decided to take a brave step into the unknown. LCC and Lithuania were the unknown to her since it was the first time she had left her home country and traveled alone.  Evianda describes how she was limited to only her home culture, and coming to LCC, she would live and study with people from all over the world. And although frightening at first, this would turn out to be one of her favorite parts of life at LCC. "The reason why I grew as a person was in part because of opportunities, but mostly it was because of the people that surrounded me. Classmates, dormmates, mentors, and professors. Grades, of course, are important, but at the end of the day, the memories with the people who encouraged me are the ones that are here to stay. Of course, it was challenging being away from my home country, away from my family, but the community at LCC became my family over the years. I learned a lot from them, from their struggles, cultures, and values. But you have to push yourself to meet people. For me, the initial challenge was meeting people outside of my own Albanian community. But it was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet people from all the different countries." From the beginning of her studies,  Evianda wanted to be active and involved in the leadership opportunities at LCC. As a sophomore she served in the Spiritual Life Team; during her junior year she was a First Year Seminar leader, and as a senior, she served as a Resident Assistant in the dorms. All of the positions contributed to her personal growth over the years, especially being a Resident Assistant. As she described, "Being a resident assistant was the most challenging out of all the leadership positions. It was all a great growth opportunity, especially since I had to do it through the covid restrictions." Evianda also remembers having great mentors at LCC, who encouraged her to keep growing as a person. During her time at LCC, Evianda also started something called "Vox Pop", a video series interviewing students, faculty, and staff about their opinion on different matters related to life at LCC. She describes this project as her “love”. She said, "When we first started "Vox Pop" with my friends Albina and Natalia, no one knew about it. However, towards the end of my studies, even professors approached me asking about it." Thanks to her academic achievements and leadership positions at LCC, Evianda received a highly competitive merit-based scholarship to study Master's in Media and Communication at Lund University, Sweden. She shared, “The university selected 3 students out of 50 to get this scholarship. And I believe that I got it because of my four years at LCC. My professors were always encouraging me. Their office was always open. We would be sitting for hours talking about how to achieve our goals. I also know that God has used this time at LCC to build me up.” We also asked Evianda to share a piece of advice with the incoming freshmen. She said, "Always go for the thing that scares you the most. For me, at first, the thing that scared me the most was leaving my country and family. But I took that challenge. So, if you want to grow, go with the thing that scares you the most. Go for it. Just leave your comfort zone. If you don’t, your worldview is going to be limited and you will never know what beautiful things are out there. At LCC, you are out in the world.  LCC International University is a North American-style university in the heart of Europe. It offers liberal arts education, which for many of the students, such as Evianda, turns the four years of studies into the most transformative and impactful years of their lives.

The 2023 Commencement Speech by Roberts Lanka

2023-06-01

My start at LCC began quite wildly. Eager for a fresh start, on the way from my house in Liepāja, only an hour away, I cut all my dreadlocks at the side of a forest road and arrived in the dorms with a fresh buzz cut. Like many freshmen, I felt incredibly lonely for the first two weeks, until I was taken under the wing of my roommate and introduced to the study abroad group, which I became friends with almost instantly, being called the most American non-American for my affinity of the Packers, SNL, and root beer floats.Since then, many things have changed.It now takes me about an hour and twenty minutes to drive home, a result of an unfortunate speeding ticket. Say what you will about Lithuanians, but they are very attentive.I have been able to continue my friendship with some of the study abroads, and last year while I was in the states, I was one of the groomsmen at a wedding for two of them who met and fell in love at LCC.And last, my hair has grown back, but, as God is my witness, much more of it is gray than it was 4 years ago. If you have spent any time with students or faculty, or have tried to understand what makes LCC special, you might have possibly heard that it is the swans, or liberal arts education, or the Georgians. If you’ve lived in the dorms like I have, you’ve definitely heard the Georgians, may God bless them.But you most likely have heard the word “community” flaunted around more than once. You might nod your head in agreement, or be confused by the word. Or, if you are anything like me and wrote your thesis on the TV show Community, you might have become irritated with the word, as I often was this semester.The fictional Greendale Community College shares some similarities with LCC. They both are liberal arts colleges. They both are run by very eccentric people. Dr. Marlene Wall, I mean this in the most sincere and complimentary way possible. But they both are mainly about their communities.So I ask once more, what is community? After 4 years, I think I have the answer.It is when you are able to bond with a professor over Steely Dan before class.It is when you can go to a professor’s house for a sermon and holy communion.It is when you can make a TEDx event and share the stories and ideas of students who would not have this opportunity elsewhere.It is when you don’t take a look at your phone notifications once every February, for you're watching a recording of the Super Bowl at a professors’ later and cannot spoil the result for yourself.It is when you are shooting a documentary, and instead of just giving you tips, your professors stay till the wee hours of the day, helping you find the correct lighting and angles.It is when you are bogged down with assignments, and despite not deserving one, a professor grants you an extension for your essay.And it is the fact that I have to give this speech because of some of ya’ll voted for me to give it.These are just a couple of examples of how LCC is a community. As I leave these halls, I want to say thank you. Thank you for all of those who I had the honor to cross paths with, and for those who I did not get to talk to, well, consider yourselves lucky.My dear seniors, thank you for being the most resilient and fun folks around, I will dearly miss you, and Godspeed in your future endeavors. For the rest of the student body and faculty that remain, I have only one request – stay a community. Seldom in my journeys I have seen a people so different, yet so close, and it is a strength you cannot take for granted or leave by the wayside. Hard have we worked to get here, and even harder you will have to work to remain.So whenever someone asks you “why LCC”, you can simply answer – because we’re a community.
