LRCC offered a final Registration Day to allow students to sign up for classes before the College's Fall Semester begins on Tuesday, September 2.
"LRCC had more than 20 'walk-ins' that were not expected for LRCC's Registration Day," says LRCC Vice President of Student Services and Enrollment Management, Dr. Larissa Baia. "With the added numbers, Fall Semester enrollment is up 5.6% as compared to one year ago today. LRCC's faculty and staff have put in a great deal of work assisting new students and making those individuals feel welcome!"
Lakes Region Community College (LRCC) Marine Technology Professor, Jake Marsh welcomed new LRCC Marine Technology students, Jason Kohr and Max Kopacz of Laconia. "Jason and Max are model Marine Tech students that are already employed in a Lakes Region marine dealership," says Professor Marsh. "The gentlemen came to LRCC from Channel Marine in Weirs Beach. Channel Marine has been a long-time supporter of LRCC's Marine Technology program."
Marsh and Marine Tech Department Coordinator, Brian Morgan have created a unique partnership with Mercury Marine in Fond du Lac, WI where LRCC professors train over 400 Mercury Marine technicians annually from the Northeast in Laconia. Mercury's corporate headquarters have provided a million dollar inventory of state-of-the-art engines and training equipment to keep Mercury Marine dealer personnel and new LRCC Marine Technology students adept with the newest technologies throughout the marine industry.
Registrations will be accepted for the Fall Semester through the first week of classes. Contact the Admissions Department at (603) 524-3207 ext. #6766 for further information.
