Lane Tech's Hewitt College & Career Center
The CCC was opened in December of 2009 as a central location, within the school, for students to access information on colleges, trades, careers, scholarships and upcoming visits from representatives from over 100 schools and businesses looking for the brightest and best Lane Tech has to offer.
Funds for the Center were donated by a Lane Tech Alum, Mr Mark Bocianski, now working for Hewitt.
The large area, formerly two print shops, in calming hues of sage, cream and purple, is decorated with original works of art on loan from the LT Art Department. School pennants ring the room and a small lounge area complete with leather sofa, love seat, chair, bean bag chairs and area rug offers a place to do research in comfort. A large fish tank, complete with colorful fish helps balance out the stress of daily life.
Material is available including everything from college applications to FAFSA forms. Books, pamphlets and catalogs are on hand for the benefit of all students.
The College Career Center is also where college, business & military recruiters assemble for one-on-one visits with students. A computer area, complete with new wireless pc's connected to the Internet can seat up to 40 students. A separate meeting area is available, complete with projector and screen, for presentations and college prep workshops.
Staff is on hand daily from 8:30 am until 4:00 pm, to answer questions and assist with filling out applications.
The CCC is located in Room 135, next to the student lunchroom. Regular hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 8:00 am until 4:00pm.
