The PRM staff would like to extend its sincere appreciation to all faculty and staff who participated in or helped with the Campus Visit Day event held Monday. More than 300 guests attended the day and evening sessions. The morning session evaluation data is in, and of those students that returned evaluations, 40% said they are definitely coming to LLCC and 45% are currently visiting colleges; 69% rated the event excellent and 31% rated it good. The majority of the students that attended plan to begin college in fall or spring 2014, with several students stating an anticipated start date as 2015, 2016 or 2017.
