Gym Gets New Bleachers, Floor
The Activities Center gym got a much-needed facelift over spring term, when the old floor and bleachers were removed and a shiny new floor and bleachers were installed. Built in the mid-1970s, the gym bleachers had warped to the point of being difficult to move, and the floor had “dead spots,” where the ball suddenly loses its bounce. Most of the old wood from the bleachers and floor was reclaimed, including some scrap flooring that was went to Deluxe Brewing in Albany to be re-purposed into tables for patrons. 

Single Stop Office to open Summer Term
Enrollment Services announced the opening of Single Stop, a “one-stop shop” model for students offering a broad range of social, financial and legal services. Set to open this summer in Takena Hall, the Single Stop office will connect students and their families to untapped resources that can help alleviate financial and personal obstacles that may prevent students from graduating. Through a unique combination of technology, consulting and institutional training, Single Stop staff will provide students with information about which federal, state or local benefits they are eligible to receive and will help guide students through the process of applying for benefits.

ArtsCare Brings Art to HOC
The Healthcare Occupations Center and the ArtsCare Program at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center has teamed-up to bring art in healing to the HOC. ArtsCare Program Coordinator Sara Krainik is working with HOC students, faculty and staff from each of the healthcare programs to create art pieces that will be featured in the new building. The ideas behind the project is to teach students the value of using arts in the healing process. Medical Assistant program students recently completed the first arts project using copper tooling. Future projects include Dental program ceramics art; Diagnostic Imaging prayer flags; Nursing wire faces; and Occupational Therapy Assistant paper quilts. The project was organized by the LBCC Arts and Aesthetics Committee.
