News and Events for the week of November 12

Good Tuesday Morning: 

I hope everyone had a restful day yesterday observing Veterans Day. I am very proud to announce that LACC has been selected to host immigration legal services on our campus. We are one of sixty-four colleges that have been selected with a goal to begin services in February 2020. I’ll have more information as we move forward with this project.

The event will take place in the Kinesiology South Gym.

Theatre Academy Presents Post Pinocchio

This Thursday through Saturday, the Theatre Academy will present Post Pinocchio, a new theatrical work inspired by the characters in Collodi’s 19th century tale of growing up. Pinocchio is all grown up and suffering the trials and tribulations of adulthood! Join us for this contemporary tale about becoming a man inspired by Collodi’s 19th century classic.

Show times are 7pm on Thursday 11/14, Friday 11/15 and Saturday 11/16 with an additional matinee show at 2pm on Saturday. Additional shows will be held next week, 11/21 through 11/23.

LACC Community Corner 

I attended a student success conference in Washington, D.C. on Monday and Tuesday and learned some new methods of delivering services to students and techniques we can use to help our students negotiate their college experience. We will discuss these and other opportunities at our next Retreat in January and early February. 

Have a great week!
