GODFREY – Thinking about what’s next for your education or career? Lewis and Clark Community College is the place to be this summer and fall.

Prospective students and parents are invited to attend the college’s first Trailblazer Talk, a virtual recruitment event, from 4-5:30 p.m., Monday, April 27.

Participants will have the opportunity to view a short presentation on the admissions process, virtual offerings and financial aid, and participate in a Q&A session with enrollment and financial aid representatives.

The event will be held over Blackboard Collaborate. Participants do not need an account to attend – just click or call in at (571) 392-7650, PIN# 3841421799 when it’s time for the event to start.

“Lewis and Clark is the perfect place to train for a career, prepare for a career change or start on your path to a bachelor’s degree and beyond,” said Assistant Director of Admissions, Records and Recruitment Ryan Hodge. “We hope the community will take this opportunity to see what we have to offer and consider enrolling with us.”

Lewis and Clark has more than 40 career and technical education programs from Dental Hygiene to Truck Driver Training, starting salaries for some of which can run as high as $50,000-100,000 annually.

The college also has numerous transfer options and agreements at a variety of four-year colleges and universities across the country. Simply by attending L&C for two years, transfer students can save an average of $18,396 on a bachelor’s degree, compared to students who attend Illinois colleges and universities for all four years.

L&C’s physical campuses are currently closed through the governor’s stay-at-home order due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The college is planning to deliver Summer 2020 classes online and continues to watch the ever-changing situation closely regarding Fall. Any updates will be posted for the public at
