Thank you from Student Life

On behalf of the Student Life Office,  thanks to everyone who participated and assisted in our New Student Welcome Lunch last Wednesday! Faculty, staff and student staff helped us to make this event possible. We had more than 130 students who had a great time connecting with faculty, Lincoln Land staff and some of our current students! We also want to extend a big thank-you to the individuals who provided us with the wonderful prizes for our winning students–Nancy Sweet, Ron Riggle and Trudy Stutzman. We look forward to building our number of students and working with you all next year!
