EUGENE, Ore. — Join us for a celebration of all LCC has to offer during our Community Day from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 14 on our main campus. 

"Our community has overcome many challenges in the past two years and this event is a celebration of our collaborative role with the community," said LCC President Margaret Hamilton. "We are open, and we will continue to train the workforce and support our students and families in achieving their dreams. Our team has rallied to create a special day of fun engagement activities for residents of all ages to experience what we offer here at LCC." 

More than 30 LCC career and technical and academic programs and support services will be represented at the event that features hands-on activities, displays and demonstrations, such as flyovers by our drone technology program. Some highlights of the day include: 

  • Chances to win a tuition-free course
  • Access to information about affordable, short-term job training and high-demand programs 
  • Drone demonstrations
  • Diesel Days and vehicle displays
  • Hands-on STEM activities for kids of all ages
  • Free chair massages by Massage Therapy program students 
  • Titans Baseball doubleheader 
  • Score a goal against a Titan student-athlete and learn more about LCC athletics 

Visitors are encouraged to explore the campus' bark trails and the Learning Garden, where guests can learn about container gardening and make their own small container garden to take home. The College is a registered plastics collection site and the community is invited to participate in a "plastics round-up" and learn about LCC's on-campus recycling operations. Clean, label- and adhesive-free plastic #2, #4, and #5 jugs, bottles and tubs will be accepted. The Child and Family Center, including its playground, will also be open for the community to learn about its community child care services and professional development available to providers.

"We have a full day of activities for the whole family and anyone interested in enjoying a day outdoors exploring LCC," said LCC Executive President and Provost Paul Jarrell. "It's a day of learning and we also hope visitors will stay for lunch and a ball game. We invite the community to come make a day of it at LCC."
