  • Greetings!

    "Summer afternoon - summer afternoon... the two most beautiful words in the English language." You may be of the same mind as nineteenth-century British author Henry James as you enjoy your favorite water sport, feast on barbecued ribs with family and friends, or enjoy a cool drink on the patio after dinner.

    And as you enjoy that cool drink, you suddenly wonder, "What's going at LMC in July?" All right, we admit that it's just possible that LMC doesn't cross your mind at all, but there are a few important dates and events coming up that we think you should know about. Please take a few minutes to learn about an important workshop, a car wash, university rep visits, a blood drive and more.

    Important Dates

    • July 3 & 4 — Independence Day, college closed
    • August 3 — Open/walk-in registration for all students
