Happy Homecoming Week LCC!

This week there are some great activities happening around campus as part of Homecoming 2010, which is hosted by the Alumni Association. Last year was our first Homecoming celebration. This year it has expanded from one day to an entire week full of fun and spirit. All throughout the week you may pick up a FREE LCC Stars Athletic T-Shirt at the GB Welcome Center with the donation of a canned good or a dollar.
Wear your LCC Gear TODAY! In honor of spirit day, everyone is being asked to wear their LCC clothing with pride. Don't forget about the free shirts that are around campus; you have no excuse to not show your spirit! Today is also the Pep-Rally to get everyone pumped for the Men's and Woman's Basketball games tonight at 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. Join us from 11:30-1:30 in the A&S Kennedy Cafeteria, 2nd Floor for some delicious tailgate food and to meet your student athletes! You might even be able to catch a few special demonstrations from the cheerleaders if you're lucky!
Also, don't forget that as a student of employee of LCC, you get into the games for free! This week you can also pick up special homecoming tickets all around campus to earn extra discounts and perks. There are also tickets for the Battle of the Bands show at The Loft of Lansing, which is taking place tomorrow and is sponsored by the American Marketing Association and for Saturday's basketball games.
Sunday is an extra-special Shop Like A Star event at Eastwood Towne Center from 11:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. where all LCC students, employees, and alumni are treated like VIPs.

October 4x8 Concert Fundraiser

The four singers of "Three Men & a Tenor" have joined together with eight members of the Lansing Symphony Orchestra Big Band and J and J Sounds to create a new sound! On October 17, 2010 the LCC Foundation had the privilege of presenting Four by Eight (4x8) in a Debut Concert at Dart Auditorium with two shows.

The shows received rave reviews from the audience and featured some great songs which varied from Classic Big Band, favorite Rock and Roll songs, and Motown, with amazing vocals and instrumentation.

The auditorium was filled with great sounds and with an audience full of people having fun grooving to the unique music! The combination of sounds was just out of this world. I think it is safe to say that people were glad they attended!

Not only did people come to have a great time, but they were also supporting the LCC Foundation and student scholarships. The concert was a special fundraising event for the Ronald K. Edwards Ph.D. Memorial Scholarship Fund. What a great way to raise money for our LCC Student Scholarships. Stay tuned to find out about our next Four by Eight concert (do I hear jingle bells?!).
