Student Testimony

“The LLC is awesome and I highly recommend it. You make friends with the same classes as you do and they make great study buddies. You have a lot in common with them from your interests to your classes.”  ~Mariah Moore, class of 2017

“The LLC provided the perfect environment for me to meet other students who shared the same goals as me. As a result I met two of my best friends who not only help me study, but also help me relax. Without the LLC I wouldn't be the happy and successful student I am today.”  ~Jacqui Sippel, class of 2016
