CLC Connection: Being part of something again

Central Lakes College has always prided itself on offering small class sizes taught by engaging and knowledgeable faculty, so we are thrilled to again offer a complete menu of on-campus courses.

As we return to normal, I think we are all ready to feel that energy of being part of something again. Our staff and faculty feel it on campus, where students are craving that in-person interaction.

In fact, CLC is already open for campus tours, fall registration sessions, bookstore purchases and one-on-one meetings with student services personnel. While you’re here, enjoy some frisbee golf or walk the CLC mile — inside or outside. If you have plans to be a new student this fall, mark Thursday, July 29, on your calendar for our All Set for Fall event. It’s an opportunity for all new students to tie up any loose ends, get questions answered, tour campus and meet staff, faculty and students, so that they’re feeling, well, all set for fall semester.

CLC has always prided itself on offering small class sizes taught by engaging and knowledgeable faculty, so we are thrilled to again offer a complete menu of on-campus courses. However, we also understand that virtual courses provide increased accessibility for many students. Not to worry! Our enhanced virtual options will continue. And remember, it’s OK to take one or two courses at a time. Part-time students graduate with diplomas, degrees and certificates, too!

We’re offering several new programs this year, including Human Services AAS Degree, Music AFA Degree, Marine and Powersports Diploma, Business Diploma, Business Transfer Pathway, History Transfer Pathway and Emergency Medical Response Technician Certificate.

An increasing number of non-traditional students come to CLC to retrain and enhance their workforce skills. Many of these programs are one year, but packed with the knowledge and skills workers need to stand out above other job candidates and be successful.


Beyond the classroom, this fall our students will enjoy a wide range of on campus activities including arts, music, culture and theater events. Students will also have the opportunity to cheer on all of our Raiders athletics teams, as 2021-22 will see complete seasons of football, volleyball, basketball, baseball and softball! We’ve also enhanced our outdoor recreation rentals for students, so if kayaking, biking or a few rounds of yard games is your thing, we’ve got you covered.
