Alice Lloyd College

Special Learning Opportunities

Washington Center Program

The Washington Center Program offers opportunities to experience and explore the nation’s Capital. The goal of the program is to allow students to investigate issues of critical public policy importance. For further information, please check with the Dean of the College or the Director of Internship Programs.

Study Abroad

Each summer, the English Speaking Union in Kentucky sends several students from the state to study in England and Scotland. This is a 3-4 week program with all expenses paid. Students need only provide spending money. Two students from Alice Lloyd College will be allowed to apply. Deadline for application is November 20, 2013. The official application can be accessed here (downloadable PDF).

International Enrichment/Semester in London Program

The Semester in London Program provides students the opportunity to study in London for one semester. Participants complete a three-hour course in British Life and Culture and several additional credit hours in courses ranging from Shakespeare to Seminar in International Business. There are additional international opportunities for ALC students such as the English Speaking Union Student Scholar Program. For further information regarding these programs, please check with the Dean of the College or the Director of the International Enrichment Program.

The existence of this program is dependent upon sufficient funding.

Public Speaking at ALC

From the Campus Crusaders, who represented Caney Creek Community Center on their fundraising tours of the United States, to the dozens of students who address convocation audiences today – there is a long and rich tradition of public speaking at Alice Lloyd College.

Students begin their exposure to public speaking through the general education program and continue to present in many classes throughout their college tenure.

Public speaking prospects abound for interested students, including opportunities to introduce speakers, organize and present at student events and convocations, lead school groups and other guests on campus tours, host radio programs, and represent ALC student organizations at state, regional, and national conferences. Students may also participate each spring in the James V. Mongiardo Public Speaking Competition, one of the college’s endowed awards.

Community Service and Continuing Education

Alice Lloyd College has always maintained a strong commitment to community service. In serving this purpose, many cultural convocations and workshops are open to full participation by the larger community.

Many people benefit from ALC’s continuing educational opportunities: the senior citizen who enjoys learning new and creative uses of leisure time; the housewife who wants to continue her education; and the employee who wants to pursue a degree for job advancement.

The community has access to all the Appalachian resources housed in the McGaw Library and Learning Resources Center. The resources may be used by high school Appalachian studies programs or for scholarly research.
