greatest perk for early registration is having the best selection of classes for the upcoming semester. But for student Joshua Uduebor, the greatest perk for registering early is walking away with his spring semester tuition paid for.
Uduebor, a freshman economics major, was the grand prize winner in the college’s Registration Celebration promotion, an on-campus, express registration event held last month at the college.
“I never expected something like this to happen to me,” said Uduebor. “I thank God and LSC-Montgomery for blessing me with such an amazing opportunity. I am extremely thankful to the administrative system for awarding such a tremendous thing to me as a student, and my family and I really appreciate this.”
During the first few days of Registration Celebration, 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 19.
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 and—best of all—free tuition for the spring semester.
Over 3,500 students registered during the first two days of Registration Celebration–approximately 25 percent of students enrolled in the fall, 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. Rebecca Riley, president of LSC-Montgomery. "Events like Registration Celebration 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 (December 19-January 3), limited advising services are available from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. in the Library (Bldg. F) and in the Student Services Center (Bldg. C) on the following days: Mon.-Wed., Dec. 21-23, and Mon.-Wed., Dec. 28-30. The offices re-open for normal business in the Student Services Center (Bldg.
