Good morning NMC students,

We hope you have had a good first month of the fall semester! While this fall semester is different than any we’ve experienced before, we are proud to see you work hard toward your goals. Thank you for how well you are following NMC’s safety guidelines. Since July we have had two positive and one presumed positive case of COVID-19 at NMC. This is very different from what we are seeing at some other colleges and we know it is because of your efforts. Thank you for keeping NMC safe!

Looking ahead to the rest of the fall semester please continue to:

  • Wear your mask and practice social distancing while on our campuses
  • If studying in a group of 2 or more please be sure to social distance and wear your masks (this includes study rooms like those in the West Hall Innovation Center)
  • Eat only in designated areas, like the Hawk Owl Cafe
  • Keep group sizes to 10 or fewer while inside.

To help limit the spread of the coronavirus NMC will not return for in-person classes after Thanksgiving break. Starting Thursday, November 26 all classes, meetings, testing and student services will be done virtually for the remainder of the semester. There will be no food service available. The bookstore, Health Services and the library will have limited service. Buildings will have limited access.

The Reimagining Learning Committee is currently evaluating plans for the spring semester. Course format options may be similar to the fall until more students can safely return to in-person learning. Our goal is to announce the plans by September 29.

Thank you for your work during this unusual time and your continued commitment to safety. Your NMC faculty and staff are here to help if you need it. Please reach out to your instructor or write to us here and we will get back to you within 24 hours.
