American Indian student body
The school has over 650 American Indian students, and annually hosts one of the largest powwows in the Pacific Northwest. In December 2010, the school opened a tribal longhouse, making it the second community college in the United States to open one, after Peninsula College, which opened its longhouse in 2007.
Geography and layout
||This section possibly contains original research. (December 2009)|
The main campus of LCC is located in central Lane County between south Eugene and Springfield, just west of I-5. It consists of 20 main classroom buildings and numerous secondary buildings. Due to the hilly campus terrain, upper floors on the north end of the campus are at an elevation slightly below ground floor on the south end. The Center Building houses the library, bookstore, cafeteria, writing center, and the majority of the English and language classrooms. Enrollment Services, the campus student center for enrollment and bookkeeping, is located in Building 1, as is Counseling and Advising, The Women's Center, The Multi-Cultural Center, Disability Resources, The TRiO Learning Center, and ASLCC Student Government and Legal Services.
LCC's campus is fully accessible for wheelchairs and the mobility impaired, and there is a network of concrete bridges that connect neighboring buildings. Parking surrounds the campus buildings on three sides, while athletic facilities such as the track, soccer field, and baseball field cover the north side of the campus. Entering campus from the west side lot, there is a courtyard that once contained a large concrete fountain but later was turned into a flat maze garden speckled with native plants surrounding a small stone fountain in the center.
The college plans to renovate the Center Building and remove the concrete walkways around it. Renovations are planned to be finished in January 2016.
Lane Community College owns the license for NPR affiliate KLCC. It broadcasts on a frequency of 89.7 MHz in Eugene and on various other repeater frequencies at other cities in West Central Oregon. KLCC is noteworthy for its eclectic music blend, highlighted by its weekday music program Living Large. From 3 PM to 6 PM, it airs a 3 hour expanded version of NPR's All Things Considered. In addition to All Things Considered, KLCC airs the flagship NPR newsmagazines Morning Edition and Weekend Edition, along with Car Talk, Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me and other public affairs and discussion programs.
