Going to class is just one part of your college experience. The Mendel Center at Lake Michigan College not only is an academic setting for classes and instruction, it is a place where you can gain hands-on experience in performing arts operations and hospitality management. Through student volunteer opportunities and internships, you can learn the ropes and see what goes on behind the scenes, and learn from professionals in the field.

If you enjoy performing in the areas of music and theater, there are exclusive master classes and workshops throughout the Mainstage season that allow you to meet professional touring artists who are willing to share information about what it is like to have a career in the performing arts.
