LCC International University Welcomes the Largest Incoming Freshman Class in Its History

2019-09-03

Each year LCC International University welcomes students from all over the world with different cultural and religious backgrounds. This academic year 2019-2020 LCC is proud to have a student body representing more than 50 countries.

"This is the third year in a row that our numbers are growing and that speaks volumes to the work that Admissions office, as well as the entire university, puts into recruitment. At the same time, LCC is also improving its programs and our alumni continue to be sought after by international employers," says Aistė Motekaitienė, Vice President of Marketing. "Part of our strategic plan is to grow our student count to 700 students. The growth over the last three years will bring us to 650 total students. And this year’s freshman class is the largest and the most diverse yet – coming from 30 countries! This very much reflects what LCC is – an international community that studies and works together here in Klaipėda."

Hanna Motorina, an incoming student from Dnipro, Ukraine shared: “Most of all, I am excited to start my BA studies in Contemporary Communication at LCC International University. I believe this program will help me develop my skills in various fields, and I will receive a well-rounded education in the end. I also cannot wait for an opportunity to travel to the USA as part of the Work and Travel program. This experience will broaden my horizons by improving my understanding of the international aspect of the world. Starting my studies at LCC this Fall means getting a ticket to a bigger world!”

LCC officially launched its new academic year on Monday, September 2, 2019. The large and diverse incoming class joined the full student body and university faculty for a Convocation ceremony that included short addresses from LCC President Dr. Marlene Wall, and Dr. J.D. Mininger, Vice-President for Academics. Presidential scholarships and individual academic department student scholarships were announced and celebrated. The LCC men’s basketball and football teams were acknowledged, and Student Council President Amy Duckworth introduced the new student governance team for this academic year.
