LACONIA — More than 100 registered for their fall 2014 classes during Registration Day at Lakes Region Community College.
Among those taking part were Bruce Thibeault Jr., of Gilmanton Iron Works, and Brielle Moore of Belmont.
Thibeault is a new Accounting major and works with his father painting houses in Bruce Thibeault Painting. Moore is entering her second year of studies at LRCC, beginning as a Business Management major in the fall having been a Liberal Arts major last year.
"Starting off in a large group of unfamiliar people, LRCC faculty and staff are quick to make everyone of all ages feel welcome and ready to start their fall semester," says Thibeault. "This comfortable feeling is a harbinger of good things to come. I am excited to start my fall semester in the Accounting program and to be working with professors Carlene Rose and Max Brown."
"I came today as a LRCC Student Ambassador and chose to join the Business Management group and decide on classes for the fall even though I had not planned to do so," says Moore. "Attending LRCC, I have found that the staff is accommodating and caters to every need no matter how spontaneous it may be. I am very thankful to have met the new students as well as the business professors."
Thibeault plans to transfer to a four-year college or university upon completion of his LRCC Associate Degree. Entrepreneurship is anticipated utilizing knowledge gained in his education.
Moore plans to finish at LRCC and transfer to a South Carolina college or university for her Bachelor's Degree in business. The warmth is a significant attraction to Moore as is the culture.
