There is nothing more frustrating than having computer issues. Sure, we have Google, but scrolling through the entirety of YouTube for help on your specific issue is no fun.

LCC is here to help. The college recently announced that Open Computer Lab Sessions will now be available on the first and third Thursday of every month from noon to 2 p.m.

Sept. 7 was the inaugural session. Help will be available on the second floor of the library in room 2310 of the TLC building every Tuesday and Thursday moving forward as well.

Library Director John Szilagyi confirmed that all LCC students are welcome for whatever they may need, no matter how big or small the issue.

“We are leaving it very open-ended,” Szilagyi said. “It’s really just about what students need help with when it comes to navigating technology.”

He added this initiative has been a long time coming, and is seemingly more necessary than ever before.

“Opening this up has been a conversation between the library, the learning commons and the success coaches for a couple of years now,” Szilagyi said. “The state has the Michigan Reconnect Program going on right now; people are coming back to school.

“So, if you have never been to college, or went 20 or 30 years ago, everything is completely different.”

Though the staff members involved are very excited about offering a new service, students are just as excited to have yet another resource to help them succeed.

LCC student Obinna Udemba agrees this is a good use of LCC resources. He said he can’t wait to have another tool at his disposal.

“I’m a computer science student so I think it would be really cool to have more computers,” Udemba said. “I use the computers for design stuff, I use the Mac in the back a lot for a lot of Adobe Creative Cloud stuff.

“My laptop isn’t fast enough to deal with the big stuff, so if I want to edit a video but it’s in 4k, I can’t do that on my laptop.”

Once again, these sessions are available to help any member of the student body with any issue that arises. So don’t hesitate to make your way to TLC room 2310 if you are struggling. Success starts with saying yes to help when you need it.
