April 2014 News and Information
LLCE Adult Student Resources
Moves to Lincoln Hall
The long awaited move is almost here! The renovations are nearly complete and by the end of April, the Division of Lifelong Learning and Community Engagement (LLCE) will be relocated to the second floor of Lincoln Hall. This means that the LLCE adult student resources office will be moving too.
We are excited about our new location and look forward to the opportunities that await us. While we will no longer be housed in Dempsey, our office will continue to provide the support and advocacy for undergraduate and graduate adult nontraditional students that you have come to know and trust.
Feel free to stop by our office in Dempsey Hall, room 323 before we move. We promise we won’t ask you to help pack any boxes or clean! Stay tuned for details on our move and watch for an invitation to visit us before the end of the school year in our new home in Lincoln Hall.
