'They listened to us.'
“During the time we have worked together, LCDG have taken the time to learn what our needs are as an institution, what the city agencies required of us and listened to the concerns of the community as it impacts our campus development. LCDG listened to our desires and applied their vast knowledge of architecture to create a chapel and dormitory that is pleasing to the community around us and fully meets the needs of the college.”
