My experience at LCC TRiO was truly life changing. The services to which I had access, were of high quality and empowered me to not only advance academically but also to develop skills that enabled me to succeed on my path beyond LCC. The academic support services, mentoring, and transfer services were offered by qualified, caring, and committed staff who were genuinely invested in the success of LCC TRiO students.
