Eva Menefee

Academic Advisor

Sagoli/Annii/Hello, my name is Eva Menefee and I am the Lead Faculty Advisor here at Lansing Community College. I have been at LCC for over 20 years, but prior to coming to LCC, I worked at Michigan State University for 10. I am originally from Dearborn Heights, and came to Lansing to go to school at MSU with every intention of returning to the Detroit area. After all these years, I am still here.

I worked at MSU, after my BA in Elementary Education was complete, as an Assistant Director of Admission (while doing a graduate degree in College Student Personnel), then I became an Academic Advisor in the Undergraduate University Division. My final position at MSU was as the Coordinator of the Michigan College University Partnership (MiCUP) which gave me insight into the workings of LCC. I was able to help minority students who attended LCC to transfer to MSU seamlessly.

I have been at LCC since 1994 in my current position and have enjoyed the variety of students I have come in contact with. Currently not only do I work with students in the Advising office, I also teach the First Year Experience (ACAD 101). I love helping new students find their path in college and helping then define their goals and find a pathway to achieving them. I know a lot about the processes of transferring, especially to MSU, as well as achieving your degree here at LCC.

On a personal note, my husband, two children and my little dog, Toby, call Lansing our home. During the summer, my family has a food trailer and we go to Native American Pow Wows and Ethnic Festivals. I have a secret wish to be the Next Food Network Star! I enjoy sports, especially Hockey, and I love the movies.
