From its start in Honesdale over 30 years ago, Lackawanna College has grown tremendously. Thanks to Lackawanna’s presence, the opportunity exists for Wayne and Pike County residents to attend college and earn a degree while still remaining at home.
The College has moved from it's previous location in Honesdale to the historic Silk Mill in Hawley. Lackawanna is taking 16,000 square feet and creating a state-of-the-art academic center that will allow the College to grow in terms of student population and academic offerings. Included in the design will be classrooms, computer labs, science labs and other student resources.
The expansion will allow Lackawanna to add new programs to our existing offerings. This past fall saw the addition of the Kiesendahl School of Hospitality and Tourism with major concentrations in Hospitality Management (Fall 2010) and Culinary Arts (Fall 2011).
Our recent Continuing Education addition is a one-year Career Advancement Program: Oil & Gas Accounting Clerk.
The move will allow students from the surrounding communities to reach their academic goals. During the last semester over 100 students took degree courses -- and this fall’s class is anticipated to be even larger. Clearly, a community need is being met.
The Center is a full service operation, providing business and industry training and continuing education courses in addition to degree and certificate programs.
Lackawanna enrolls a diverse student body. To attract top students, the college provides scholarship aid to those with high SAT scores. Others arrive at the institution, however, with academic deficiencies -- and find the help they need.
The College is committed to an open admissions policy; past performance doesn’t preclude future achievement. Developmental courses to improve learning skills are provided and backed by intensive counseling and tutoring. Financial aid is available and courses are distinguished by small class size and a great deal of individual attention.
Residents can earn an associate degree in many different areas of study and smoothly advance their education and career goals. The College links to the State System of Higher Education through the Academic Passport Program which allows a Lackawanna graduate to transfer directly to one of 14 state universities as a junior, with no lost credits or wasted money.
Graduates of Lackawanna can be found in leadership positions throughout this nation -- in its banks and industries, in its classrooms and hospitals, in its courthouses and city halls. For everyone who attends, Lackawanna College specializes in opportunity.
Lackawanna College’s Lake Region Center is located at 8 Silk Mill Dr. in Hawley. For further information about new programs or to register for classes, phone 570.226.4625 or e-mail us at email@example.com. You can visit the college on the web at www.lackawanna.edu.
