“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.
