LSSC Learning Centers

By: Sarah Oulman

Most students aren’t aware, but there are facilities on each campus which provide free tutoring and assistance. The LSSC Learning Centers are designed to help students excel in their classes, provide quiet areas to study, and more; however, many have never utilized these resources.

The staff includes paid tutors and volunteers who specialize in a variety of subjects. Whether you need help on your homework or don’t know how to study for your test, the tutors are always available.

In addition to tutoring, the staff provides Rosetta Stone tablets to anyone who wants to practice a foreign language. In fact, you don’t even have to be taking a foreign language class to do so. The Learning Centers also have equipment for students with disabilities and quiet rooms for those who want to reserve a space for group study sessions.

Unfortunately, many students don’t know these services are available. Lexie Johnston and Christina Lott, students at the Leesburg Campus, told me that neither of them have gone to the Learning Centers for help. According to Lott, “Most students know about the Learning Center, that I know of, and they use it when they need to.” Meanwhile, Johnston told me that she knew many students “who don’t know where [The Learning Center] is or what they offer.”

While some have discovered what the Learning Centers offer, many others haven’t. Next time you’re struggling with homework or can’t grasp a concept from your lectures, head over to the Learning Center on your campus!

From Parent to Student: A Father's Experience at LSSC

By David Housley

It’s no secret, college can be overwhelming for anyone. Most students at LSSC are employed while taking multiple classes. They then dedicate a few hours each night to studying which consumes the scarce amount of free time they have left. If any student allows even a single day of procrastination, there will be a snowball effect. This effect will cause an inevitable pileup of homework. Consequently, adding young children to the mix turns college life into a high-stakes balancing act, stretching students to their limits. As a parent, I can relate to those students firsthand and sympathize with all the unexpected but costly incidences that occur because of parenthood.
I’ve been a student at LSSC since January 2017. Since first enrolling, I’ve had the additional responsibilities of fatherhood; working full-time and helping my wife raise our two boys who are now three years old and seven months old. While it is not uncommon for LSSC students to have a job, I can say with con…

Clermont Home to Supercross Legends

By: Sarah Oulman
CLERMONT, Florida – Aldon Baker, one of the most well-known and successful trainers within the Supercross community, is currently training several of the sport’s top riders at his facility, which is located in the Clermont area. In an interview at this training facility, Baker gave a glimpse into what it is actually like to train these professional riders.             When I asked Baker about his journey to becoming a trainer in his field, he explained that he initially trained individuals, specifically bicyclists, using cardio and strength conditioning techniques. Baker’s cycling career brought him from his home in South Africa to America, and once in the United States, the brand Oakley steered him towards working with motorcycles.             Baker also explained that his elite training program did not come together quickly. According to the celebrity trainer, “The [conditioning and training] developed over time… It took 17 years to create the full training package”. …

School Shooting Crisis: An LSSC Student's Perspective

School Shooting Crisis: An LSSC Student’s Perspective Opinion by David Housley
The shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School was horrifying. When I heard the news, my first reaction was, “How did this happen?”In seven minutes, a 19-year-old man managed to fatally shoot 17 people and wound 14 more with an assault rifle. Why was the shooter not stopped sooner? School districts need a drastic increase in funding to ensure students are safe from harm, because no parent should ever receive a text message from their child at school saying, “If I don’t make it I love you and I appreciated everything you did for me.”
As an LSSC student-parent, I fear for my children’s future. The shooting at Douglas High marked the eighteenth school shooting in 2018, while in 2017 there were only seven school shootings by February. The increase is alarming, and students, parents and teachers should not have to fear for their lives. LSSC has taken matters into their own hands by teaming up with ALICE Train…
