Ready to become a Red Hawk?

Orientation is the next step! 



What is orientation?

New Student Orientation at Lake Michigan College is designed to help you become familiar with the College environment and learn strategies for a successful start to your educational journey. You will be introduced to Lake Michigan College’s campus, programs, policies, services, and student resources.

Orientation can also be an opportunity for you to meet and connect with other new students, as well as with faculty and staff members who can provide support and guidance throughout your time at the college.

LMC's orientation days include:

  • Registering for your classes
  • Learning how to be successful in your program
  • Getting to know your fellow Red Hawks
  • Meeting with key faculty and staff
  • Getting your questions answered so you're ready for the upcoming semester!

If you plan to attend orientation, please arrive to your chosen orientation day at least 30 minutes prior to the start time for check-in. Check out LMC's campus maps and locations info so you know where to go for your orientation session. Parents/guardians are welcome to tag along with their student, as we have a special orientation session for you!
