College Closed on First Day of Classes
Middlesex Community College (MxCC) is closed Monday, August 29 due to the threat of Hurricane Irene. This closure affects the Middletown Campus, the Meriden Center and classes held at Old Saybrook High School. If the College is not operational beyond Monday, it will attempt to make closure announcements through its normal media outlets, on its website, and through its emergency notification system. Should those outlets not be accessible students are encouraged to call the College switchboard at 860-343-5800 choosing option 1 to hear the College’s status.
MxCC students can also register anytime to receive text messages for emergencies and weather related closings, delays, or early release through the myCommnet Alert system by creating an account on myCommnet and clicking on the associated links. Students able to access Blackboard Vista (the College’s Web-based management and delivery of course content site that allows faculty to supplement their on-ground course with online components) can check the crn number of classes in which they are registered to see if their professor/s have posted a message.
Students, who already have their textbooks, are encouraged to become familiar with the introductory sections in preparation for when classes do start.
The two days of late registration are delayed until the college opens and will be held the first two days that classes are in session. Dr. Anna Wasescha, president of Middlesex Community College said, “I hope everyone in Irene's path stays safe, and I look forward to seeing all our students at the start of the fall 2011 semester.“
