New Student Orientation

What's Different about College

  • Students are here because they want to be - LMC is a happy & dynamic place
  • There's more freedom of choice - you choose your classes and schedule
  • Although it costs money to attend college - it's an investment in your future
  • Classes are academically challenging - and more rewarding
  • While there are many support services provided - you have to seek them out
  • Satisfactory progress in your classes is required - or academic probation and dismissal can result
  • There are high standards and expectations for student conduct - the college is a respectful adult environment
  • More responsibility - you are responsible for managing your time, going to class, knowing important dates and deadlines, communicating with your instructors, and knowing about the Student Code of Conduct and Student Rights & Responsibilities
