Lone Star College to host Welcome Back events
HOUSTON, TX -- Lone Star College wants to help people interested in education get back on track after the pandemic.
“COVID-19 disrupted so many lives and we want to help people interested in education get back on track,” said Gerald F. Napoles, Ph.D., LSC Vice Chancellor Student Success. “This event will provide everyone the opportunity to receive support in course selections, financial resources as well as professional counseling.”
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that even in the best of economic times, workers who have higher levels of education typically earn more and have lower rates of unemployment compared with workers who have less education. The same holds true for the economy created by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Welcome Back to Lone Star College events takes place Wednesday, June 8, from 3 – 6 p.m. at all eight LSC campuses and includes a virtual event for LSC-Online, the college’s eighth official campus.
“This will be a wonderful opportunity for former students to familiarize themselves with all the student support services available to them,” said Napoles. “There will be Lone Star College staff on hand to help answer questions and offer career counseling.”
Qualified students may also be eligible to get up to $1,000 for summer classes with no strings attached for two summer classes and additional resources including laptops, iPads, and software through the LSC TechConnect program while they are enrolled at LSC.
