Muskegon Community College closed all of its campuses on Monday morning, Nov. 23, following the discovery of a bomb threat at its Grand Haven Community Center location. The MCC administration evacuated its students and employees and cancelled classes at all of its locations in Muskegon, Ottawa and Newaygo counties.
The Grand Haven Police Department responded and conducted a search of the Community Center. The Muskegon Police Department facilitated a search of the MCC main campus, while the Newaygo County Sheriff’s Department responded to the Educational Service Center at NCRESA in Fremont. By midday, the respective law enforcement agencies issued an all-clear for the facilities.
Classes will resume on Tuesday, Nov. 24.
“Once we received word about the threat, we initiated our campus safety protocols,” said John Selmon, MCC vice president for student services and administration.
