Lone Star College-Conroe Center student Phalisatee White is the "Avoid the Stampede" early registration grand prize winner, receiving free tuition for the upcoming spring semester.
greatest perk for early registration is having the best selection of classes for the upcoming semester. But for student Phalisatee White, the greatest perk for registering early is walking away with her spring semester tuition paid for.
White, who takes classes at the LSC-Conroe Center, was the grand prize winner in LSC-Montgomery’s Avoid the Stampede promotion, an on-campus, express registration event held last month at the college.
“Winning this scholarship is a blessing,” said White, a sophomore accounting and business major. “I was having a hard time with financial aid not going through. But this was my cue that I need to stay in school right now. I am thankful for LSC-Montgomery giving me this opportunity.”
During the first few days of Avoid the Stampede, advisors, counselors, and faculty members were stationed in several high-traffic locations to assist students in signing up for the spring semester, which begins Monday, January 12.
Students were given free food, t-shirts, and college goodies for registering early. Plus, those who registered during the month of November were eligible for other big prizes like a Microsoft Surface tablet, wireless Bluetooth speakers, and—best of all—free tuition for the spring semester.
Almost 3,000 students registered during the first two days of Avoid the Stampede, which helps the college to better manage enrollment and serve students during the latter stages of the enrollment period.
"The number one goal is to help our students be successful," said Dr. Austin Lane, president of LSC-Montgomery. "Events like Avoid the Stampede get our current students positioned for success in the upcoming semester, and it allows us to spend more time advising those students who need it most."
During the two week winter break, limited advising services are available from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. in the Library (Bldg. F) on the following days: Mon.-Tues., Dec. 22-23, and Mon.-Tues., Dec. 29-30. They will also be available in the Student Services Center (Bldg. C) on Fri.-Sat., Jan. 2-3. The offices re-open for normal business in the Student Services Center (Bldg. C) on Monday, January 5, with the following schedule: Monday-Tuesday, 8 a.m.-7 p.m.; Wednesday-Thursday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.; Friday, 8 a.m.-3 p.m.; and Saturday, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Students may also search for classes and register online at www.LoneStar.edu/registration.
