It’s 30 degrees in Lowell.  Sounds like a good time to start thinking about summer plans, right?!

Our students may have noticed that for a few days in January, the counseling department gained a member.  Tim LaBranche, a 2012 LC grad and a current senior at Endicott College, was completing an internship and learning about becoming a guidance counselor.  One of the things Tim helped out with was updating out enrichment program Google document.  That information is always accessible by clicking on the “Enrichment Program” tab of this blog, but can also be found here.

Enrichment programs are a great way to learn more about a subject you are passionate about.  When they take place on a college campus, they can give students a taste of what college life will be like.  If you have any questions about a program, please see your counselor!
