  • Trailblazer Snack Pantry

    The mission of the Trailblazer Snack Pantry (TSP) is to meet the immediate hunger needs of students, eliminating that distraction from their day and allowing them to focus on their educational needs. Since it opened in the fall of 2018, the TSP has served several hundred individual students on the college's Godfrey campus. Hungry L&C students are allowed two free snacks per day.
