Lynn Entrance Points
On behalf of the College’s Labor & Safety Committee, I would like to remind everyone that the exterior door at the loading dock of the McGee Building is a restricted access point. Access through that location is restricted to campus police, facilities operations, auxiliary services and approved vendor deliveries. Campus Police will only buzz in authorized persons. All others entering the building should do so through the entrance points at the east and west ends of the building.
Thank you for your cooperation.

Making "Magic" in Salem by making meals each year around Halloween
North Shore Community College students served Sunday lunch at Lifebridge in Salem on October 27, 2019.

Members of Professor Jane Levesque’s Introduction to Criminal Justice class put the SERVICE in Service Learning/Community Service.
