The LCC International University program is a unique program to Gordon College in that it is an "exchange" program. Beginning in Spring 2008, students from Gordon will travel to LCC for one semester, and LCC students will come to Gordon the next semester. With 600 students from across Europe, LCC International University in Lithuania is a mosaic of cultures. At LCC students interact with the three main Christian traditions (Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant) and will see how those from other traditions connect with God. Over the semester, students will experience first hand that God is much bigger than any specific church or denomination. Students from Gordon will join with thirty other North American students to immerse themselves in the culture of the Baltic states. In living and studying alongside their national and international peers, Gordon students will discover why LCC's students are driven by a unique understanding of independence, freedom, and possibility.
Travel is guaranteed while at LCC. Over the semester, students visit four countries in four months: Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, and Russia. This means unique destinations with opportunities for learning more deeply firsthand. With everything LCC teaches about being travel savvy, students will be able to travel around Europe independently on the weekends.
Besides traveling to the best cities in the region, students will learn how to live like an urban European where people (lots of them) live in a small space, bumping into each other (sometimes literally). Buses and trains, cafes, cobblestones, and markets are all parts of daily life at LCC.
