The Lurleen B. Wallace Community College Experience

Once a student is accepted to LBWCC, they will be invited to attend the LBW Community College Experience new student orientation. Attending the LBW Community College Experience is designed to give each student a "jump start" in obtaining information about the programs and services at LBWCC.  During these sessions, students will also have the opportunity to meet other new students who will be starting classes during the same semester. 

During the on-campus LBWCC Experience session, students will

  • acquire a better understanding of how college works

  • have questions answered from LBWCC faculty and staff

  • learn about their LBWCC degree plan and register for classes with their academic advisor

  • tour the college campus and see where classes will be located
