First Ever Discover Days Brings Many Prospective Students from the Area to Lewis and Clark
Many prospective students filled campus during the first of two Discover Days hosted by the Enrollment Center.
Discover Days allows prospective students the opportunity to learn more about enrolling at Lewis and Clark Community College and to experience the Godfrey Campus. “We planned to have Discover Days on a day that many of the local high schools were off from class, but we were in class,” said Director of Enrollment and Advising Delfina Dornes. “We wanted to give prospective students the chance to tour the campus to see classes in session and so they could talk to our students.”
Prospective students were also given the opportunity to meet with the different services and clubs Lewis and Clark has to offer. Financial Aid, Advising, The Bridge, L&C Pride, Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, and WLCA were present to talk with prospective students. “I think having Discover Days is a great way for the clubs on campus to have the opportunity to talk with students who are considering Lewis and Clark,” said WLCA member Alex Pritzker. “It allows us to promote our clubs and maybe give students another reason to attend L&C. We are able to show them that we’re an open campus and have some fun clubs especially the Radio Broadcasting club.”
Along with the booths, there were also guided tours available from L&C employees. Prospective students had the choice to take a general tour of the campus or take tours that were for the programs they were interested in.
Prospective students were also treated to free food, drinks, and some L&C swag. There was also music, a photo booth, caricature drawings, and a balloon artist available.
The next L&C Discover Days is planned for Feb. 19 on President’s Day at the Godfrey campus.
