College isn't all about going to class and working. Part of the enjoyment is getting to meet new people that you share an interest with. The best way to this is through clubs. Lake Michigan College has a plethora of clubs to get involved with. There are both academic and recreational clubs. See what ones you might be interest in at the LMC club webpage.

Leadership Events


Lake Michigan College students get the opportunity to engage with leadership through monthly workshops, retreats, and attend leadership summits. The monthly leadership workshops are designed to work with busy student schedules. Each month a new topic will be introduced to the students over lunch. They will be exposed to theories, best practices, and successful techniques while only needing an hour of time. The LMC leadership retreat takes place in early fall. Students will spend a day exploring leadership through multiple lenses, engaging with current students, and applying their new knowledge to their life, clubs, careers, and classes. Lastly, the Grand Valley State University leadership summit takes place in the spring. LMC students have the opportunity to attend and meet students from colleges and universities all over the state. The summit includes workshops, keynotes speakers, case study competition, and networking revolving around leadership. Keep an eye out for these events on the LMC calendar!
