LCC held its annual College Night on Thursday, Oct. 19 on the main campus as a way for students to connect to colleges in the Midwest region.

Representatives from more than 50 colleges and universities gathered in the Gannon Commons to offer information and advice.

 “I came because I’m a freshman, but I just wanted to start seeing what was out there, so I'm ready for college,” said East Lansing High School student Hannah Russell.

Officials from colleges and universities came together to inform students, parents and community members about the opportunities they can take toward future educations.

“I’m behind the mission of being passionate about others’ education,” said Columbia College Chicago Admissions Officer Sherard Howell.

The goal of College Night is to help prepare and connect students who are curious about where they can go next. Recruiters were patient and compassionate with each individual who approached their booths.

The Douglas J School of Barbering was among those with recruiters in attendance, showing that had traditional two- and four-year colleges are not the only option for students.

“Douglas J decided to be here just in case anybody wants to make any career changes,” said Douglas J Lead Educator Andres Martinez. “(We want) to be able to let them know what other options and trades are huge right now, and (that) trades will never go away.”

There was an incredible turnout for College Night. The commons were packed, full of eager individuals and welcoming college recruiters.

“Opportunities don't go away, they go to the next person,” said Waverly High School junior Hamza Dinki.

College Night is annually held at LCC, and the fair is always open to anyone who wants to come and make a big, or small, decision in their academic career.
