The Connections Program provides first year students and their families with information and tools for a successful transition to campus life.
Our Connections Program has been awarded a Certificate of Merit from the National Academic Advisors Association for Outstanding Institutional Advising Program.
Connection Groups & Freshman Advising
You’ll be placed in a Connection Group with other freshmen who have the same academic advisor so there is a close working relationship among you, your advisor and your Connection Leader.
At the end of your first semester, you may select another academic advisor, usually one in your intended major. For more information about working with your advisor, or to change advisors, please see the Academic Advisors page.
The Connection Program involves current students as peer leaders and mentors for first-year students.
If you wish to apply to be a Connection Leader, you must completed one year at LC before the fall semester, have an overall GPA of at least 2.5, and a clean disciplinary record. A successful candidate will be articulate, responsible, compassionate, full of energy and enthusiasm, involved on campus and a good role model for other students.
More information, specific dates, and a description of the application process is available late fall.
