Update #2 Friday, August 26, 2011  12:30 pm

Dear MMC Community,

Due to the likely closure of the NYC transportation system beginning on Saturday afternoon, the College will not hold our planned Parent/Family Orientation and Reception originally scheduled on Saturday, August 27 at 5 pm. While this may inconvenience some families, health and safety are paramount.

Saturday move-in to the Residence Hall will continue as scheduled from 7 am to 2 pm, but families should not plan to move in during the hurricane on Sunday or Monday.

On Monday, August 29, 2011, the College's administrative offices will be closed and all Orientation activities for the day are cancelled.

Any questions regarding housing check-in should be directed to the Office of Residence Life at 212 -774-0740.  Any questions about New Student Orientation should be directed to the Office of Student Development and Activities at 212-774-0788.

Update #1Thursday, August 25, 2011  

Dear MMC New Students and Families,

Like all of you, we have been watching carefully the intensity and track of hurricane Irene. The National Weather Service forecasts that the storm may reach the New York metropolitan area as early as Saturday evening, bringing tropical storm or hurricane force conditions which can include heavy rain and strong winds.

In light of these expected conditions, the College has cancelled Sunday student check-in and the Sunday Parent Orientation and Reception scheduled for 2 pm. At our 55th Street Residence Hall, check in times will begin an hour earlier at 7 am on both Friday and Saturday to allow those of you who can to arrive before the brunt of the storm. If you can only check in on Sunday, though we have officially cancelled the move in, we will have staff available to assist. We will also be ready for you if you can only move in sometime Monday or Tuesday. Please come when it is most convenient and safe for your travel plans; It is not necessary to contact Residence Life if you can arrive either on Friday or Saturday. If you plan to check in on Monday or Tuesday, please email Residence Life at residencelife@mmm.edu to let them know.

For those of you who had a Sunday move in date for 92Y, we encourage you to delay your arrival to Monday or Tuesday. If you haven't heard from us directly yet, please email residencelife@mmm.edu to solidify your plans.

If Parents/Families have scheduled to attend the Parents and Family Orientation and Reception on Sunday, August 28th, we invite you instead to join us at one of our other receptions:

- Friday, August 26 at 5 pm
- Saturday, August 27 at 5 pm
- Thursday, September 1 at 4 pm

New Student Orientation, which is planned to begin on Monday, is still scheduled with the understanding that some students may still be arriving. We will welcome students whenever they come. Any questions about New Student Orientation should be directed to the Office of Student Development and Activities at 212-774-0788.
