Student Success at LCCC

Welcome to Luzerne County Community College!

If you are a first-time freshman, allow me the opportunity to extend a warm welcome! We are committed to supporting and guiding you through this new step in your academic pursuit. If you are a returning student, welcome back! I look forward to meeting you and continuing to support your personal and academic goals at LCCC..

There is much excitement and challenges associated with being a college student. As a LCCC student you have tremendous advantages, including the diverse courses and degree programs offered, an experienced and committed faculty, personalized academic and support services, student-centered staff, faculty and administrators dedicated to your success. I encourage you to get involved and make the most of your educational experience. Learn about the many resources available to you, seek advice and support as soon and as often as you need it, join a club, visit with your professors, attend campus events, meet new people, ask questions, challenge yourself, and most importantly give it all you got. Your academic success depends on how well you take responsibility for your own education. This is the time to develop your strength and talents as you craft your career foundation.

Feel free to stop by my office or any of our Student Development departments to say hello, ask a question or give us feedback. We look forward to serving you as you strive to reach your goals.

Wishing you all the best,
