Open House set for new LU Madison Center location
Lakeland University will celebrate its new Madison Center location at 2310 Crossroads Drive, Suite 3200, with an Open House from 4-6 p.m. on Wednesday, October 5.
Visitors can stop by any time, grab a snack and learn more about Lakeland’s new home. A ribbon cutting ceremony is set for 4:30 p.m. There will also be a drawing to win a free Lakeland class.
Lakeland moved from its previous location at 1650 Pankratz Street this summer in time for fall classes.
Lakeland’s space occupies a portion of the third floor of the building and features four classrooms equipped with technology to support Lakeland’s BlendEd course delivery model. The center also includes office space for Lakeland advisors.
A common area for use by students, faculty and staff includes computer workstations, a copier/printer and access to a sink and refrigerator. The space features a balcony overlooking the state capital that provides a meeting space.
Students, faculty and staff also have access to a conference room, a pub-style breakroom complete with pool tables and other recreational activities that are common to all building tenants.
The building is located at the crossroads of I-90/I-94 and Highway 151 and located on the city bus line.
“In our new location, we will continue to offer the same academic programs and flexible platforms that our students have come to expect as we strengthen our presence in the greater Madison area,” said Lakeland President Beth Borgen. “Our new space is welcoming and it already feels like home.”
Lakeland’s Madison Center serves primarily non-traditional age students who take classes in the evening or online. Classes through the Madison Center are offered onsite one night per week, online and via BlendEd Live, which allows students to attend live classes, virtually, from anywhere one night per week.
Lakeland developed the state’s first evening degree-completion program for working adults in 1978, and Lakeland has offered classes in Madison for 43 years. Founded in 1862, Lakeland has six centers statewide and a main campus located in rural Sheboygan County.
Students in Madison can choose from programs such as: accounting, business administration, computer science, criminal justice, food safety & quality, marketing, psychology and more. Lakeland also offers a master of business administration, master of science in leadership and organizational development, master of arts in counseling and a master of education.
