Today State Initiative 502 (I-502), the legalization of possession and use of a small quantity of marijuana for those 21 and over, goes into effect. HOWEVER, it's important to know that possession of marijuana is still a federal crime. As a state institution that accepts federal funds, we are bound by federal law. Therefore, it is still illegal to posses or use this drug on campus. Thank you for helping us follow the federal law so we don't lose our funding.

A lot of people are headed back to school. What schools are they choosing? Why schools like LWIT because of their bang for the buck. Many AA degrees get graduates into jobs sooner, and with better pay, than bachelor's degrees.

Congrats to our Machine Technology Program, which just received $400,000 in new equipment this week. Did you know that program has been here more than 40 years?
