Potential students were invited to explore Lewis and Clark Community College during Campus Visit Day/Winter Blast on Feb. 20.

L&C held its first Campus Visit Day/Winter Blast on Monday Feb. 20 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Commons on L&C’s Godfrey campus.  

When asked what the day was about and what was expected Student Activities Director Jared Hennings replied, “The purpose was to demonstrate to potential incoming freshmen that along with learning about what classes Lewis and Clark offers that students actually have fun and can enjoy themselves on campus.”

Hennings continued, “Being a student should offer options where you’re involved in campus life – meeting others you don’t know and getting involved in clubs and organizations. We just wanted students to realize Lewis and Clark has an engaging environment that promotes school spirit.”

Along with refreshments, the event also included free activities including a photo booth, a caricaturist, balloon artists, a DJ and contests.

Current high school senior and potential L&C student Ava Ostendorf stated, “I’m excited to see what L&C has to offer in regards for my future education.”

Advisors and experts were in the Commons to speak with potential students, who will also tour programs and labs.

Near the end of the event had been rather interesting when the fire alarm went off. When speaking to the L&C Bridge Editor-in-Chief Helen Paige Jarden what she thought of the event overall and the incident she said, “The fire alarm went off, surprising everyone. Some people ran out of the building while others kept participating in the spinning contest. Overall, it was a very exciting way to end a fun event.”
