For those who have been waiting for updates regarding their collegiate career at Lake Michigan College, the school is out this afternoon with update information on both the campus shutdown and the launch of the summer semester.

Lake Michigan College is extending the date for its campuses to re-open in response to Michigan’s updated stay at home order.

Lake Michigan College campuses in Benton Harbor, Niles and South Haven first closed to the public on March 20th. They were originally scheduled to re-open to the public today, Tuesday, April 14th. The new scheduled public opening date is Monday, May 11th.

This latest measure follows a decision to extend remote learning for students through the rest of the spring semester. The college originally transitioned its in-person, face-to-face classes to be delivered remotely beginning on March 23rd with a plan for students to return to campus on April 14th. Now students will participate in remote learning through the duration of the semester, which ends Friday, May 1st.
