May 2014 News and Information
LLCE Adult Student Resources Has a New Home
On Tuesday, April 22, the moving trucks arrived and helped with the relocation of our office, the LLCE adult student resources office. The move is complete, boxes are almost unpacked and we are continuing to settle into our new location on the second floor of Lincoln Hall.
While we are no longer located in Dempsey Hall, our office remains open and ready to provide the support and advocacy for undergraduate and graduate adult nontraditional students that many have come to know and trust since 2004.
Please stop by and visit us in Lincoln Hall, room 229. Students can also reach us via email email@example.com or by calling (920) 424-1137.
