The Lake Land College Adult Week Celebration is scheduled for April 18-22, 2016. During the week, Lake Land will hold two events designed exclusively to invite adult students to explore their opportunities. The first event will be held on the campus in Mattoon on Tuesday, April 19 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The second event will be held at the Kluthe Center for Higher Education and Technology in Effingham on Thursday, April 21 from 4-6:30 p.m. Chris Strohl, Director of Community Outreach for LLC, told Regional Radio News this is an opportunity for adult students to learn more about the college by registering for classes and going on a tour.
The number of adult students has increased over the years at community colleges, as Strohl noted that more than 40 percent of LLC students are 25 or older.
