Mt. SAC starts in-person labs and classes for some students
A “Campus Closed” sign can be seen in the Mt. San Antonio College parking lot as one drives by on Grand Avenue in Walnut.
But that’s not entirely accurate — this week, several classes began with in-person instruction for professions considered essential.
From nursing to EMT schooling to a fire academy to welding to a variety of lab classes, professors and students alike are braving the elements of the coronavirus pandemic for educational progress.
By and large, all feel safe because of the array of guidelines being followed.

Trustee Chen Deployed Overseas (2019)
Mt. SAC Board of Trustees member Jay Chen, a member of the U.S. Naval Reserve for nine years, has been called up for his first long-term deployment. Chen will leave later this month for Kuwait to support an Army unit in Operation Inherent Resolve, the U.S. mission to intervene against ISIS in Iraq and Syria.
Trustee Chen, who represents the communities of Hacienda Heights and La Puente, is a lieutenant and serves as an intelligence officer. He will be on mission for a minimum of 270 days, but with training, could see that extended to as long as a year. Such a long-term deployment has an effect on his family, his career and his public service to Mt. SAC.
