Midland College officials are happy to announce that the Fall 2021 schedule of classes
includes many face-to-face classes for the first time in 18 months since the COVID
pandemic started. In addition, students will also have the opportunity to choose
hybrid (combination of face-to-face and online), online and virtual formats.
“The COVID pandemic changed the way we offered courses,” MC President Dr. Steve Thomas
said. “Our faculty and staff did an excellent job of converting classes to online
and virtual formats in midstream during the spring 2020 semester. Our students also
adapted, even though many of them preferred face-to-face classes. I want to thank
everyone who persisted. I know it wasn’t easy. Now, we are ready to resume a full
load of face-to-face classes, as well as continue to offer some online and virtual
class sections. One good thing about the pandemic is that we really perfected the
way we teach online and virtual classes.”
Thomas also said that the college is excited to once again open residence halls and
resume student activities, as well as community events.
Craddick and Daniel residence halls will open to full, double-occupancy capacity.
Private rooms are available in O’Shaughnessy Hall. Interested students should contact
the Student Life Office.
Plans are underway for a community back-to-school family celebration on August 12
sponsored by the Phyllis and Bob Cowan Performing Arts Series. The FREE event will
feature a performance by The Great Dubois, a fast-paced variety show with incredible
feats of juggling, hula hoops, unicycle, aerial circus stunts, contortion, magic and
audience interaction. More information is available on the Midland College website.
The MC Student Life Office is planning many student activities for the first week
of college classes, otherwise known as “Welcome Week.”
Registration for the fall semester is underway. Students who apply to Midland College,
file the FAFSA application and enroll in fall semester classes by July 1 receive priority
consideration for scholarships. Visit the Midland College website for more information.
