Campus is buzzing as new and returning students swarm Lorain County Community College for fall semester which began on Aug. 28.

Nearly 11,000 LCCC students and nearly 3,000 University Partnership are enrolled in classes this semester, including courses at learning centers in North Ridgeville, Lorain and Wellington. More than 120 associate degree and certificate programs are available through LCCC, and more 50 bachelor’s and master’s degree from 12 Ohio universities through the University Partnership, including the new Lake Erie College Parker Master of Business Administration.

LCCC President Marcia J. Ballinger, Ph.D., welcomed students to campus with a video message that was shared with students and the campus community. (View the full video below)

“Whether you’re just starting college, or you’re here to give it another try, we are here to support you,” Ballinger said to students in the video. “Let’s chase your dreams together.”

Ballinger greeted students on the first day of class in College Center, where she treated students to coffee and talked with them about their majors and career plans.

With fall semester in full force, College Center has again become a hive of activity, with student clubs and information tables lining the halls and eager students lining up to learn more about the many academic and extracurricular activities at the college. Welcome Week events included a coffee bar, therapy dog and crafting station. The week wrapped up with an all-campus picnic and a students vs. staff softball game.

There is still time to enroll in short-term fall semester courses that begin on Oct. 2, Oct. 23 and Nov. 6. See available classes at www.lorainccc.edu/latestart.
