The Office of New Student Recruitment engages in the recruitment of all domestic traditional, transfer, and nontraditional students by developing marketing materials, coordinating campus visitation programs, tele-counseling, and participating in various outreach activities. The office participates in the development of new student markets and coordinates the New Student Orientation program.

Outreach Activities

Students are recruited from select high schools and community colleges in Idaho, Oregon, Washington, Montana, and Nevada. Staff members also represent the College at a variety of community-based events and regional businesses.

Campus Visitations

The Office of New Student Recruitment coordinates campus visitations for prospective domestic students. A visitation may include a campus tour, meeting with a faculty advisor, attending a class, staying overnight in the residence halls, participating in campus events, and meeting with an enrollment advisor. Special visitations are also available for larger groups of students with common interests or objectives. Students are encouraged to schedule a visitation at least two weeks in advance and during the academic school year. High school students are also encouraged to participate in Warrior Discovery Day.

Warrior Discovery Day

High school students can personally experience LCSC by participating in “Warrior Discovery Day.” This program allows students to experience life on campus by meeting current students and faculty advisors and checking out campus activities available to them. Discovery Day is a day-long event which includes large group activities, an information session for parents, lunch, and a tour of campus and the residence halls.

Student Shadows

Prospective students interested in Career & Technical Education programs in the Technical & Industrial Division are encouraged to schedule a student shadow in one of the live labs as part of their visitation. The shadow provides students the opportunity to see firsthand what the programs have to offer. Students will tour their program(s) of choice and meet with current students and instructors.

New Student Orientation

New Student Orientation is a required program for all new degree-seeking students. The activities are designed to help students gain a sense of the campus community and to help students form a connection with the college. Students can earn one college credit by registering for SD-107 or SD-307 by attending the orientation program.
