Truck/crane in front of Commons this afternoon; will not block entrances

This afternoon, we anticipate having a truck/crane in front of the Commons to lift a 4,000 lb. piece of equipment on to the roof of Sangamon Hall.  We will not be blocking the entrances to the Commons or Sangamon Hall.  This “lift” is associated with the upgrading of our Variable Frequency Drives at Sangamon, Menard and Cass.  These drives allow us to control the air movement of individual spaces serviced by our HVAC systems.  As always, we appreciate your patience.


If you have any questions, please call 6-9605.

Thank you from Janice Lovekamp

I would like to express my sincere thanks to my LLCC family for the cards and expressions of sympathy that were extended to me and my family at the passing of my father. I would especially like to thank everyone in the Health Professions department for the lovely angel statue. It is a wonderful remembrance and will be treasured. I am truly blessed to work with such caring and compassionate individuals. Thank you so much!

Thank you from Linda Cunningham
