Describe the students at your school.

In most of my science classes there are a mixture of students, almost all being older than myself with a few my age, but all are hard working.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I could go back in time to when I was in high school I would tell myself that college is a lot of work done by yourself. I would help myself by preparing how to study because as of now I do not have well developed study skills.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about LCCC would have to be getting a hold of people including teachers and administrative workers. Also a lot of people think that LCCC is an easy college because it is a community college but it is not that easy specially when you have a lot of science classes. I feel that they have to be hard than colleges because in order to transfer your credits must be equivalent to theirs.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

To take my education more seriously. I would go to school more often then I did, to get used to the class time of college courses. I would take subjects more seriously, such as math which gave me trouble. Gathering a better understanding of the concepts and time managment issues that where needed for college. I probablly would have also found a place to live, so I would not have to worry about housing issues, which would have given me more time to devote to my studies. Although I wish al these things, I can honestly say that without the experiences of the past, would not have made me who I am today. Having first hand experiences, has given me a better understanding of the surrounding world and myself.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish that I would have known that homework is an important factor in the success of one's self. The first year, taught me without the repetition of the information, it is otherwise useless, at least for me. Unlike some students it takes me a while to comprehend various material.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

That I am almost done, no really that I got to continue my education inspite of my financial difficulty. Without the financial help that I recieved I doubt I would have been able to achieve my goals.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

My College is special because everything is kept personal and friendly. The classes are small and the overall number of students is kept to a limit that helps you get to know many of them. This also makes instructore's email responses a lot faster which I enjoy a lot.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I could go back in time I would tell myself to keep an open mind about what my major will be. When you start going to college so many opportunities and choices appear, that it would be sad not to explore several of them. Other then that I would tell myself to get a calender right away, to never push back my homework because it will all end up crushing you at the weekend and to not sit in the very back of the class. The last row in a class seems to be a good hiding spot but the truth is, that exactly there are often times the students who will annoy you by chatting about non subject related topics. The last thing I would tell myself is to not be worried. The best way to survive in College is to be confident. If you are not afraid of any subject, assignment, teacher or student you will have the best time in class and on campus.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I tell friends mostly about how technically advanced everything is, from online and video classes to doing homework online and being able to reach your instructor pretty much any time you want. Also the fact that they are always building something new (e.g. the library and now a building) is amazing. This campus just keeps developing.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

High school is only a stepping stone on the road to success. Use your time and energy to achieve high marks in school while helping out the community. Though the illusions of fun and social success may seem to be the most important things at the time, beware, those same things will cause hardship in your up and coming years after graduation. College is more important than personal success on a high school level when that success only hinders your academic abilities. So when in high school focus on your future and try to make something of the 4 years you have, live it up, but always keep in mind there is a world outside of the poorly painted building called high school. Keep your head in the game!

What's unique about your campus?

LCCC is a great school for students that are still unsure about what direction their life will be taking. LCCC gives students a challenging yet rewarding academic environment which gives a student a chance to settle into a prospective major and a chance to enter a 4 year university. I have learned discipline while also learning how to use time in the best way in order to achieve success both in and out of school.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Any person who is still debating on the major in which he/she will want to pursue.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would say LOOK TABATHA LISTEN CLOSELY! Yes friends and having a social life are important but those books in there and all that homework they assign you are going to strengthen your mind for what is to come. This generation needs to be educated for this future that is upon us. We are the light and we need to shine bright and show this world what our mind is made of. So stay smart, do your studies, keep your education number 1 BECAUSE we are the only ones responsible for this one chance this one life we are given. Make a DIFFERENCE!

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

LCCC has a very diverse student body and I feel very comfortable as an older returning student. I have degrees in another field from nationally recognized universities. I find the quality of instruction at LCCC to be comparable to these universities but at a fraction of the cost. Because it is a small local school, I receive more personal attention. I am not another number in a field of 60,000 other students. Web-access is much more user friendly than other college sites I have used.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Before I graduated from high school, I was expected to choose a career and immediately go away to college. College was not about making dreams come true. College was to guarantee success in making a steady, living wage and to graduate as soon as possible. During the 20 years since I graduated from college, I was successful and had a steady, living wage but I started to dream. I dreamed of being more creative and wondered what would have happened if I had guaranteed less and risked a little. Success must be balanced with satisfaction. I realized you never have to decide the rest of your life at 16 years old. You can recreate yourself at any point in time. I decided to return to college in a completely different field. I give this advice to my children who are now graduating from high school. A career is not a life, it is only a part of your life. Start with your dreams and then pursue them, but balance this with practicality. Take time to learn about yourself as well as train for a career. As you pursue your career, never stop learning and never stop dreaming.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The school is perfect for people interested in re-training for technical or medical careers. I found it very useful in re-entering the academic world after a 20 year absence. It is also a great start for people who want to earn their general education credits before transferring to another 4 year college. My daughter is enrolled at a state university but is looking to take a few credits toward her degree while she is home over the summer.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I was to go back in time as a high school senior and talk to myself knowing what I now know about college life and making the transition, the advise I would give myself would be to follow my dreams and pursue what I enjoy doing. If I didn't know what I enjoyed doing I would advise myself to explore the differant testing opportunities that colleges offer to give myself an idea what I might excel at. I would tell myself that college is a breeze compared to the constant toiling with very little pay that will await you in your occupation without any college education. I would tell myself to enjoy college and make the most of the precious treasure that has been offered and to totally immerse myself in college culture while still young and able to enjoy the immense opportunities that education and college social life has to offer. I would tell myself to never give up on education because it is the only gift that can never be taken away by anyone or anything.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about my school is the quality of education. The professors at Lehigh Carbon Community College are very professional and take the time to be sure that each student is acclimating well to the classroom.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The kind of person that should attend this school is one that takes their education seriously and is willing to put forth the time and effort it takes for an enriching and rewarding education.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

The nursing program that they have is very well known. Also it is very difficult to be accepted since you have to take the TEAS test.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would tell my self to study more and pay more attention in classes. I have to study more now since I never studied in high school and got straight A`s just from listening. I have to put more effort since I have a hard time studying and memorizing things.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

There are limited amount of people that can help you. You have to ask around or look it up in the internet. There is only one advisor that I can say helped me a little, but is the same problem with everyone that attends the college.
