The Lindquist Student and Conference Center (LSCC) will reopen to our students and the public on February 1, 2021.  The LSCC will operate under capacity limits and COVID screening criteria recommended by the State of Michigan and the CDC. The walking track will have a maximum capacity of 20 individuals at one time and the weight room will allow two individuals at one time. The gymnasium will be open for individual skill improvement (shoot baskets, dribble, run). No recreation competitions are allowed at this time. All visitors will need to conduct a self- screening to determine their eligibility to utilize the facility and will be required to disclose their name and phone number for contact tracing, if it becomes necessary, along with wearing a mask at all times and maintaining six-foot social distancing. The College is cautiously hopeful in reopening the facility and looking forward to meeting the needs of its students and community members.
