November Travel Guidelines

In just over one week, our College community will be on break, from Wednesday, November 25, through Sunday, November 29, 2020. During this time, many of you will be traveling to visit family and friends. New York State has issued guidelines and requirements for travellers in general and for college students in particular.

If you are traveling over the break, whether leaving the New York tri-state area or returning to it, click on the link below that best describes your status. It is imperative that you closely adhere to all guidelines and requirements in order to continue to keep our campus safe and healthy, as well as to be in compliance with New York State directives.

Fall Final Stretch

The period from November 30 to December 21

Fall Final Stretch is an opportunity to identify and promote the many, diverse projects faculty and students are doing during the final weeks of the semester, whether virtually or in person. These projects and showcases will be promoted on the website and across MMC’s social media. Participating in these activities, whether virtually or in person, is a great way for the MMC community to celebrate the outstanding work our students have been doing from around the world throughout the fall semester.

Thank you for helping keep the MMC community safe and healthy during the rest of the fall semester.
