Every year, thousands of legal permanent residents from around the world dream of becoming United States citizens. To help them achieve their goal, these individuals are invited to attend the Citizenship Forum at Lone Star College-Kingwood on Saturday, Jan. 25. The workshop is from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. in the Student Conference Center (SCC).
Lone Star College offers a variety of programs and courses tailored to fit students’ needs and their busy lives. Instead of taking a traditional 16-week class, students can register for an eight-week class and still learn the full material covered in the full 16-week course. The shorter programs allow students, with limited time, a chance to earn a college education.
Senior adults can expand their social circles and broaden their horizons through the Academy for Lifelong Learning (ALL) at Lone Star College-Kingwood. The program offers a multitude of free and low-cost classes and activities for retired, semi-retired, and working seniors age 50 and older. To learn more, ALL will host Open House events on Jan. 14 at the LSC-Atascocita Center and Jan. 23 at the East Montgomery County Improvement District. Both sessions are from 1-3 p.m.
A college education can lead to an endless amount of opportunities for the student and their families. With that in mind, spring registration for Lone Star College-Kingwood and LSC-Atascocita Center begins Nov. 13, and will continue until the first day of class on Jan. 13. “Our programs are designed to fit a wide range of academic goals toward certificates, associate degrees, university transfer, or personal enrichment,” said Dr. Katherine Persson, LSC-Kingwood president.
The Lone Star College-Kingwood Women’s Center’s mission is to empower women’s advancement in education and the workforce. The center accomplishes this by offering a variety of programs to dispel negative stereotypes while inspiring female students to pursue careers in male-dominated fields. To encourage more women to enter the science, technology, engineering and, math (STEM) industry, the center and the Office of Student Life will host the “Women in STEM Panel” on Nov. 7.
With seemingly endless divisions in the country and around the world, music is perhaps uniquely positioned to bridge the divide when other potential bridges have been burned. To that end, the Lone Star College-Kingwood Concert Choir will present their fall concert, “A World Tour in Music,” featuring music from all over the world. This fun and informative concert will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 29 at 7:30 p.m. in the Music Instructional Building Recital Hall.
The Lone Star College-Kingwood art faculty will exhibit their work at the 2019 Fall Faculty Show. The faculty’s artwork will be on display from Oct. 30-Dec. 3 in the Administration and Performing Arts Center (APA) Fine Arts Gallery. The opening reception is on Nov. 6 at 12 p.m. The exhibition and all events are free and open to the public.
The stress of daily life or a 24-hour news cycle can put some people in a dark place. For those seeking a reprieve from the noise of the world, the Eclectic Voices of Kingwood (Evok) at Lone Star College-Kingwood will present “Peace and Rest,” a through-composed choral experience on Friday, Oct. 25 at 7:30 p.m. in the Music Recital Hall. The concert will feature works from the Renaissance to modern pop songs collectively meant to take the listener’s mind to a calm and serene place.
