A Message from the President
Dr. Herbert H. J. Riedel
Thank you for your interest in Lurleen B. Wallace Community College and welcome to our website. We are one of 1,195 comprehensive community colleges in the United States, which educate 46% of all undergraduate students in the country and award 555,000 associate degrees and 295,000 certificates each year. LBW is one of the 26 member colleges of the Alabama Community College System, a leading resource for providing higher education and economic development in our state.
LBW is distinguished by an outstanding, competent, and caring professional faculty; relevant programs of study for the real world; and leadership in the communities we serve for enhancing their quality of life through educational and cultural offerings. Our students benefit from a collegiate atmosphere close to home, numerous student clubs and organizations, and special events, such as the Ms. LBWCC Pageants, Saints Day, Blue and White Day, assembly programs, and special performances held in conjunction with the Covington Arts Council. LBW participates in intercollegiate athletics in the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) in Men's and Women's Basketball, Baseball, and Softball.
Our campuses in Andalusia, Greenville, and Opp and our Luverne Center, provide up-to-date and attractive buildings with beautiful landscaping. Each campus features a modern conference center, available for College and community events. Both the MacArthur and Andalusia Campuses have walking/fitness trails, with the latter also offering a well-equipped fitness center, lighted tennis courts, the Evans Barnes Golf Course, and the City of Andalusia Dream Park.
I invite you to explore the many opportunities Lurleen B. Wallace Community College has to offer and sincerely hope that we can become a part of your future, just as LBW has been part of the future of many of our community leaders since 1965. Today more than ever, the success of this important community resource is essential for our communities' future growth and prosperity.
