Middlesex Community College will host the fall Opening Session of the Middlesex Institute for Lifelong Education for Seniors (MILES) at 2 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 6, in the Bedford Campus Center Café East, 591 Springs Road. The opening session will feature a discussion about campus safety and active-shooter awareness by MCC’s Campus Safety Team. The event is free and open to the public.
The term “active shooter” gets tossed around far too frequently these days. But what exactly is an “active shooter” and what actions should you take if you are ever in that type of situation? Join the MCC Campus Safety Team to learn the best practices and enhanced lock-down procedures during an active-shooter event. This is information you can use anywhere to protect yourself, as well as your family and friends.
MCC’s MILES program offers stimulating, interactive daytime seminars and workshops – with no term papers, tests or grades – for active, older adults. This informational and entertaining Opening Session provides community members an opportunity to learn more about MILES and the courses being offered, and is a good opportunity to meet instructors and peers. Light refreshments will be served.
Each MILES course is $15. All MILES participants enjoy free use of the MCC Fitness Center and library. For the complete schedule of MILES courses, contact Caitlin Campopiano at 781-280-3570 or visit www.middlesex.mass.edu/MILES
