Welcome to Our Newest Chaps!


We are thrilled you are here! This is a time of excitement, nerves, and great change. Many have walked this path before you and have kindly offered words of wisdom to help you as you start this journey.

  • When I first started as a freshman, someone said “You get out of it what you put into it.” These words proved so true. – Laura Patterson, Class of 2014
  • Don’t blow off your freshman year. It’s not as easy as high school. – Addison Ard, senior
  • Go to class; Go to class; Go to class. – Carole Carroll, English faculty
  • Get involved but stay focused! You are here for more education and it is easy to get distracted and fall behind. Whatever happens, remember to never give up! It may get hard but there is a light at the end of the tunnel and it will all be worth it! -Chelsie Huseman, Class of 2016
  • Also, it is ok to ask for help when needed. The professors are there to help, so don’t be afraid to go and talk to them! –Chelsie Huseman
  • Coming from a past instructor: ALWAYS read the syllabus! And refer back to it frequently! – Linda Gilmore
  • Don’t underestimate the value of prayer, don’t wait to be on mission until after you graduate, and truly plug into the LCU community. – Cody Chumbley, Class of 2005
  • Don’t be afraid to open your mind to ideas you’ve never heard before. College is an opportunity to come face to face with areas of past miseducation. – Terra Tindle, Class of 2007
  • Your professors want to see you succeed. They care about you academically – and most care about you personally. Always communicate with them and be honest. They can tell when you’re lying.  – Samantha Torrez, Class of 2016
  • Remember: Keep Jesus first & please manage munch money wisely (huge mistake of mine) lol – April Brown, sophomore
  • Keep a planner!! Schedule time to get homework done BUT schedule time for yourself! If you’re worn out, your work will be too! -Shelby Garrett, Class of 2016
  • Don’t wish that the semester would go by faster and don’t spend so much time trying to plan the future. Take every moment you have and make the most of it; be present every single day. Cherish the people you meet, the things you learn, and the awesome experience that college can be! – Demi Lorey, senior
  • This is an opportunity to hit the reset button. Whatever you did or were in high school doesn’t matter. This is a fresh beginning! Much like baptism! – Keith Rogers, Math faculty
  • No, really…GO TO CLASS!! – Casidi Dillon, Class of 2013

Enjoy orientation! Your classmates and professors look forward to meeting you.
