Lamar Community College students can realize incredible personal and career growth by participating in activities that mirror their interests.
The Student Government Association(SGA) is comprised of 5 elected student officers and a student senate make up of volunteers. SGA meets weekly to plan student events, discuss campus issues, and vote on student related decisions. Students who participate in SGA are given the opportunity to gain meaningful experience they can take with them after they graduate from LCC. For more information on SGA email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The purpose of the State Student Advisory Council (SSAC) is to serve as an advisory body to the Colorado State Board for Community Colleges and Occupational Education. Members of the SSAC are elected by a vote of their respective student bodies. LCC elects a SSAC Representative each year.
Located on the historic Santa Fe Trail, the City of Lamar (county seat of Prowers County) serves as an industrial and retail center for southeast Colorado. Located in the fertile Arkansas River Valley, the surrounding agricultural landscape features wide-open spaces with panoramic views of irrigated corn and alfalfa fields, as well as dryland sunflower and wheat fields. This semi-arid climate is favorable to livestock production and offers an average of over 300 days of sunshine annually. Communities within Prowers County are known for their hometown friendliness and character, and offer many incentives for those relocating businesses and homes.
Long known for its beautiful windmills, Southeast Colorado is located on the “wind corridor” and is becoming a hub for renewable energy as it is now home to two large wind farms. Located in Prowers County, Colorado Green has 105 wind turbines and is capable of producing 158 megawatts, the energy required to service 22,000 homes. Twin Buttes Wind Farm added an additional 50 turbines and 75 megawatts to the area’s production.
At the intersection of highways 50 and 287, Lamar is located on the Ports-to-Plains travel corridor. With this designation and active rail service, the area also has the opportunity to create and/or recruit additional transportation-related businesses.
Visitors and guests can find a variety of recreational activities, historically significant sites and western traditions to visit or attend year round in southeastern Colorado.
Campus Housing and Meals
Welcome to Housing and Residence Life! Students who will be living on campus call Todd-Burch Residence Hall home. Todd-Burch Hall (TBH) houses 197 students on five floors, separated into two wings. TBH residents have access to pool and ping-pong tables, a weight room, basketball and tennis courts, 24hr laundry facilities, and multiple computer labs. Each room has access to cable TV and the internet.
TBH has a full-time, live-in housing staff (Resident Assistants and the Coordinator of Residence Life) to assist students with their everyday living needs. A full-time custodial crew maintains all common spaces for a clean living environment. LCC does not provide facilities for married student housing.
On-Campus Living Requirement
All single freshmen under the age of 21, not living with parents or relatives while attending Lamar Community College, are required to live in the Todd-Burch Hall. Transfer students who have completed two (2) full-time semesters on a college campus (concurrent high school enrollment and distance education NOT included) are exempt from this requirement.
All students receiving Housing Scholarship monies are required to live in TBH.
Living on campus means you have a front row seat to all Student Life events, but it also means you get to take part in Residence Life. Residence Life provides events just for students living in TBH.
Every floor has at least one assigned Resident Assistant (RA). RAs are trained and expected to assist students with their everyday needs under the direction and supervision of the Coordinator of Residence Life.
At TBH students are required to abide by the policies and rules found in the Student and Resident Handbooks. Our goal is to provide a safe and comfortable place to live that is conducive to learning; we are committed to enriching students’ lives through education both in and out of the classroom.
