The Dennos Museum will be closed to the public effective March 15 through April 5. All scheduled events during that time have been canceled as well.

Dear Dennos Museum Center Community,

With careful consideration for the health and safety of our community, The Dennos Museum Center at Northwestern Michigan College will close to the public effective Sunday, March 15th through Sunday, April 5th. Events scheduled during that time have already been canceled.

The Dennos Museum Center will carefully assess the situation with NMC and reevaluate in the coming weeks. We hope to have resources available online in the coming days so that our visitors, students, and community may continue to enjoy our collections during this temporary closure.

Museum employees will still report to work for their regularly scheduled hours. For the most up-to-date information from NMC on COVID-19, please follow this link: https://www.nmc.edu/student-services/health-services/corona-virus/index.html.

Take good care and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

Sincerely,

Craig Hadley

03/13/2020

Northwestern Michigan College president Nick Nissley announced early this morning that NMC will suspend face-to-face classes starting Monday, March 16. This is in response to the global coronavirus pandemic, and follows Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer's call for a State of Emergency and to shut down K-12 schools throughout the state next week. According to Nissley's email: "All NMC classes will be delivered via online learning if possible. Some courses may not be able to be delivered via online learning, including some occupational and lab classes (e.g. culinary and welding.)"

"While classes are transitioning to online delivery, please note that campus is still open at this time. This includes all services and offices. We have many services available via phone, email and video conference, and are actively working to expand those options. We also have counseling services available, if you are feeling overwhelmed or anxious at this time. NMC’s two residence halls, East Hall and North Hall, as well as the NMC apartments, will remain open and food service will be available for those students who want to remain on campus."

"Our plan is to resume face-to-face classes on campus the week of April 27. Given the highly volatile nature of the pandemic, we recognize this situation may change and we will continue to communicate with you."

Given the highly fluid nature of the situation, the best place to find updates is at nmc.edu/coronavirus

Keep Teaching | [email protected]

In order to prepare for the possibility that Northwestern Michigan College will decide to suspend all on-campus learning and move coursework online—as Michigan State University has done in response to Coronavirus cases in Michigan and Governor Gretchen Whitmer's State of Emergency declaration last night—NMC has launched a new [email protected] website to provide resources to assist in moving coursework online. According to Stephen N. Siciliano, Vice President for Educational Services, the college's Educational Services Instructional Management Team and other staff and faculty leaders will meet next Tuesday (March 17) "to develop further plans to prepare to move as much instruction as possible into an online format in the event it becomes necessary to do so." NMC has also established an online hub for coronavirus updates (https://bit.ly/2xn26UX) which includes information about keeping the campus clean, about travel and on-campus events, about face-to-face classes, and about Coronavirus, in general.

Keep Teaching Overview In the event of a campus closure or emergency, faculty may be asked to teach their classes remotely. Depending on the circumstances, students might be scattered across the Grand Traverse area, across northern Michigan or in other remote locations. To keep students progressing....

If young people turned out to vote as frequently as their parents and grandparents did, American politics, and policies, would be completely different—and perhaps more representative of the future needs of this country. Randi Upton reports for the White Pine Press on one Chicago-based effort, the "Give a Sh*t" campaign, which seeks to engage youth in politics during the 2020 election season.

Thirteen students from Northwestern Michigan College (NMC) will immerse themselves in a unique cultural experience this June, reports Steven Tucker in the latest White Pine Press, NMC's student-run newspaper. Students will explore Brazil on a 9-day cultural journey through large cities and small indigenous villages. Much of the trip will take place in the Amazon Rainforest where students will learn about the forest itself and how people have coexisted with local flora and wildlife. In 2017, NMC ranked 17th nationally among community colleges by the Institute of International Education. After 2020, NMC will have led approximately 475 students to 20 different countries since 2013. These trips have included experiences like working with Syrian refugees in Greece, teaching science in Costa Rica, and even mapping a coral reef in Indonesia.

Our newest edition of the White Pine Press, the student-run newspaper at Northwestern Michigan College, features NMC's new "community-minded president" Nick Nissley, who took over on January 1, and has been showing up everywhere in the Grand Traverse region with an outstretched hand and a listening ear. "From community open houses to student group receptions, board meetings to ice skating and tubing with students, getting to know the local small businesses and even joining a team for NMC’s trivia night at Right Brain Brewery, Nissley has made a point to ensure that his schedule, which had nearly 100 different events in his first few weeks, includes touching base with the community as a whole," writes Emily Slater.

Mr. Fred Rogers, has become mainstream popular again. Why is it, in the past three years, two movies have been made and three books written about him, nearly 20 years after his death? Is it nostalgia, looking to the past to remember times when things were simpler, or is it a generation of people desperately seeking love and validation of their emotions as they struggle to process this world?

PlayStation 3 owners enjoyed That Game Company’s BAFTA award-winning “Flower” when it first released a decade ago. The game’s 2019 Steam release expanded its availability to PC users as well. The ingenuity of “Flower” lies with its ability to say so much without uttering a single word. The game is not only a relaxing challenge but also a welcome experience.

The fourth annual Women’s March took place in Traverse City on Saturday, Jan. 18. People from all over northern Michigan came with signs and pink hats, and one handmaid, to march and discuss the issues at hand. Over the years the issues have changed—this year there was an emphasis on climate change and immigrant rights.

This year, Northwestern Michigan College's Osterlin Library will move from its spot among the shady pines to the West Hall Innovation Center, the college’s newest building. It’ll become a 24-hour entity and will continue to build on its goal of helping NMC students, faculty, and the community at large, which it has been doing since the college was founded in 1951. The library moves forward without one integral piece of it, though. Rochelle Hammontree, who has spent the last 35 years working first as an office manager and then as a paraprofessional who hired and trained student workers, retired at the end of 2019, just months before the big switch to the Innovation Center.

A play about the daughter of a brothel owner who falls in love with one of "his" prostitutes. A clampdown on the arts and free expression. Love, magic, hope, and despair. Anti-semitism and the Holocaust. Currently at Traverse City's Old Town Playhouse through this weekend, "Indecent" is rising to critical acclaim. Read Micah D.

We live in a time of perpetual upheaval, writes student journalist Nick Moug. Our institutions—both secular and sacred—have been vulgarized by scandal and unforgivably criminal activity. The center cannot hold. One might wish there was a book that addresses these problems: the decline of trust in institutions, the breakdown of society due to intensely fractional politics, and an overall climate of confused hopelessness. Well, there is such a book—Dante Alighieri’s “The Divine Comedy", written 700 years ago.

In 2001, the old Cherry Growers freezer building was demolished to make way for the West Bay Campus—now known as the Great Lakes Campus—home to Northwestern Michigan College's Great Lakes Maritime Academy, the Great Lakes Culinary Institute (GLCI), and Lobdell's A Teaching Restaurant. Interest in the demolition was so great that a private webcam was installed nearby so that NMC employees could watch from their desks and an invitation was issued to the public to “See the Wall Come Down.” The building stood as pictured below from September 2001 until spring 2002, when demolition was completed.
