The rhythms of the final month of the academic year are always intense . . . and rewarding. These are the weeks in which we enjoy the longer days and the more frequent walks in the forest. These are the weeks in which we recognize the learning and the transformation that has taken place among our students. These are the weeks in which we are diligent to ensure that we end well.
Our senior thesis (and business plan) defenses are always a highlight. Students as experts in their areas are a compelling example of growth over 4 years. This year we had over 120 defenses – by department, in multiple rooms on multiple days, with classmates encouraging each presenter. Here are a few of the topics from various majors:
Albania in the Eyes of Europe: International Media Framing Analysis
The Distinction between Emotional/Mental Health and Spiritual Health and the Distinction's Importance for Resilience in Christian Ministry
Effects of Workload Division on Interhemispheric Processing in Complex Semantic Tasks: Evidence from Reaction Time Differences
Traumatization Level, Anxiety, and Media Exposure among Ukrainians during Russian-Ukrainian War
Risk factors and security issues that are inherent in online banking
The Impact of Greenwashing on Customer trust and purchase intentions
The effect of mergers and acquisitions announcements on the stock prices of companies in the US banking sector
The Analysis of TikTok Influencers’ Appeal and Persuasion Though the Len of Traditional Criticism
An Autoethnography: Family Photographs from Wartime, Living Through Memories
Tim Hortons Klaipeda
Propaganda about Ukrainian Nazis and Putin’s Approval Rating
Lies and consequences of Lies in the movie Not Okay
As an academic community that values peacebuilding, we claim that peace is everyone’s business. We’ve been together for a year of training, of listening, of dialog, of building awareness, of studying diplomacy, of understanding Jesus’ commandment to love one another.
We are grateful for the global LCC community . . . for YOU! We have been able to navigate the complexities of this academic year because we know that we are part of an extended community of support.
Thank you for your prayers. We sense God’s provisions for us through your faithful prayers.
Thank you for your financial giving. We prayerfully raised our Annual Fund goal this year, in order to be able to better support our students in need. LCC is a safe and caring community, a strong academic community, and an environment in which our students can thrive. Thank you for helping us sustain this campus ethos.
Thank you for joining us in our mission “to provide Christian liberal arts education in a diverse learning community that transforms people for servant leadership.” Our students are blessed by your involvement from near and far.
We are humbled by the ways that God uses the global LCC community to offer encouragement. Just as many others, we too are stretched by 17% inflation and excessively high utility bills. We know we cannot pass those expenses on to students who come from countries that are experiencing much worse economic and political crises. And so we strategize, and plan, and adjust, and develop. And we are grateful for every gift that helps us meet our goals.
If you have never given to LCC, would you consider a gift before July 31?
If you have given to LCC this year, we thank you for your generosity.
If you are yet to give to LCC this year, we are grateful in advance for your gift.
May God bless you . . . as you continue to bless others around the world through the work of LCC.
