LCCC needs to bolster student experiences during pandemic

It may take weeks, months, or even years for LCCC to look like its former self. Not worrying about social distancing, masks and hand sanitizing is something that will probably never go away, at least to some degree. Covid-19 has changed education the way September 11, 2001 changed the airline industry. LCCC is doing what

Arts in the age of Covid calls for creativity

Pink tape marks seats all around The Playhouse, distancing them in a familiar manner in this age of COVID-19. The 100 seats are now only 21. Jason Pasqua, the Instructor of Theatre, sits easy in one of The Playhouse chairs. “Theatre is about large groups of people in the same room,” Pasqua said. “We can’t

LCCC students struggle with juggling between being a student and being a parent.

I went to almost every grocery store in Cheyenne with the addition of Sportsmans warehouse back in early March, as the virus began to demand stay-at-home orders, to see shoppers stocking up for the Coronavirus. The shelves were stripped empty. Even just locally here in

Dear Members of the Board: On October 9th, the day after the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) concluded their accreditation visit, the president of Laramie County Community College (LCCC) stunned the campus by announcing the removal of the vice president for academic affairs from office. More shocking was the simultaneous announcement of the replacement and the
