The LaGrange College curriculum is designed to increase its students' creative,
critical, and communicative abilities. With a dedicated faculty, peer-staffed
Tutoring and Writing Centers and academic enrichment sessions offered by the Counseling
Center, everything is in place to help you achieve academic success. But there
is a catch: these services are worthless unless you take advantage of them.
LaGrange College offers a great many opportunities for students to grow as leaders. Start
the process of branching out through exploring athletics, Student Government, or
Greek life. Seek a Resident Advisor position or join one of the 50-plus student
organizations. Signature leadership programs include Leaders Inspired for
Tomorrow (LIFT), a year-long leadership development program for approximately ten
incoming students that includes a four-day Outward Bound program in the mountains
of North Carolina, and the Servant Scholars Program, an effort to team highly-motivated
students with nonprofit agencies to meet community needs.
The concept of Global Engagement is integrated into just about every aspect of
student life here at LaGrange College. Since 2001, LaGrange College has been
the only college in Georgia to offer a Jan Term, four weeks set aside for special
interest classes, internships, and travel – both foreign and domestic. "Study
Away" groups have journeyed to Greece, England, Vietnam, Guatemala, Italy, the
Galapagos Islands, France, and Japan. As an incoming student, you will receive
a $2,500 travel voucher for use your junior or senior year, so there is nothing
keeping you from gaining a better understanding of the incredible diversity that
the world offers.
Part of your growth at LaGrange College involves learning who you are in relation
to the community around you. To that end, we offer many opportunities for
inner exploration. Students can give back through each semester's Service
Saturday, the Student Government Service Committee, Alternative Fall and Spring
Break trips that minister to the homeless and hungry in places like San Fransisco,
Nashville, Miami, and Savannah as well as year-round campus-based service projects.
LaGrange College takes pride in graduating students of character who will become
models of workplace integrity. During First Week, incoming students sign the
College Honor Code, pledging that they will not lie, steal, or cheat. Also
in place at the College is a Social Code that outlines the institution's expectations
for conduct outside the classroom, and the student-led Honor Council and Social
Council, charged with adjudicating issues relating to campus integrity.
