LMC Alumni

At Lake Michigan College, you're a Red Hawk for life. Our alumni are living proof that an LMC education can truly fit into any life - and make any dream a reality. We're proud to say many of our alumni are still actively engaged with the college through donations of time, money and talent. We could not continue to serve our students and the southwest Michigan community without their support, which helps us provide: 

  • Academic Excellence - Supporting specific programs allows us to invest in the latest technology for our students and training for our faculty.  

  • Arts & Entertainment - Supporting The Mendel Center helps bring high-quality entertainment to Southwest Michigan. Plus, it helps our students get hands-on experience with top-notch technology and equipment. 

  • Scholarship Assistance - Supporting scholarships ensures we're able to serve even more students of various ages and backgrounds. 

  • Student Athletics - Supporting intercollegiate athletics offers students the opportunity to compete in the MCCAA Conference and NJCAA Region 12 Division. 

Get involved in the Alumni Association  

If you're looking for an even more active role at LMC, consider getting involved in the Lake Michigan College Alumni Association. Every person that has attended LMC is automatically granted a lifetime membership in the Alumni Association.  Open to people who attended or graduated from Lake Michigan College or Benton Harbor Junior College, the Alumni Association provides an opportunity to participate in the progress of the College.
