    January 9, 2017 | Lehman College

    The Lehman College community came together this week in a unified effort that reflects the college’s ability to mobilize and cope with adversity during a crisis.

    Tuesday’s power outage caused the evacuation of four buildings and relocation of administrative personnel. By Wednesday morning, the College’s most critical student services were up and running in temporary spaces, set up in the Music Building’s East Dining Room and Faculty Dining Room.

    Barely skipping a beat, Admissions, Registrar, and Financial Aid staff were deployed to makeshift offices in the East Dining Room. International Services, Veterans Affairs, and General Advisement were among the departments working in the Faculty Dining Room. On Wednesday, the school held its “common advising day” where faculty advisors are available to meet with students to answer their questions.
