Introducing Community Service and Volunteerism

Welcome to LVC!

This summer in the Office of Community Service & Volunteerism we’re making preparations for you to begin to experience the joy of serving as early as Orientation Weekend.  A two-hour service project scheduled for Sunday afternoon will introduce you to 15 student-led service organizations at LVC.  It’s going to be a meaningful time.

Community service is meaningful, joy-producing, and noble. It can also help you to get a job.  For all these reasons, students at LVC are encouraged to participate in LVC’s Community Service Awards. Three levels of achievement are available for inclusion in a student’s personal profile on LVC’s Job Center:

  • Students who perform 25 qualified hours of community service during their tenure at LVC receive a Bronze Community Service Award.
  • Students who perform 60 hours of qualified service are awarded a Silver Community Service Award.
  • Students who perform 100 hours of qualified service received a Gold Community Service Award.

Hours are submitted by a report available online at our Web site.  Once it is determined that the hours qualify according to LVC’s Service Hour Guidelines, they are recorded.

Detailed information regarding upcoming events is available via Facebook. Join the groups “Community Service” (for one-time service events) and “Volunteerism” (for on-going opportunities) at www.facebook.com/about/groups/schools.

Fall Schedules are Online

From the Office of the Registrar:

Your fall 2014 schedule is now available online. To view it, please log in to MyLVC and select AccessLVC. We have made every effort to provide you with the schedule you requested, but may have had to register you for a different section (at a different time than you requested) or for an alternate course, if provided. After reviewing your schedule, you may find that you will need to make changes. You will have an opportunity to do so during orientation on Friday, August 22, when you will meet with your advisor. You may also make changes to your schedule during the add/drop period, August 25-29.

In addition, transfer and AP credits received to date have been entered and will also appear in AccessLVC on your transcript and your degree audit (a report that allows you to track your progress toward all graduation requirements). Additional credits submitted will be processed as they are received (please allow some time for processing). For more information on these credits, please see our Advanced Placement and transfer credit policies.

Please note that it is possible your schedule may change between now and the start of the semester. We therefore recommend that you review your schedule again when you arrive on campus.
