New this season! Buy non-member tickets to see your favorite speakers!

This year you can purchase individual presentation tickets to see one or more of your favorite speakers. No membership is required. But hurry! Public ticket sales are limited.

Three easy ways to purchase your tickets

Thanks to a new arrangement with The Mendel Center at Lake Michigan College, non members can get individual speaker tickets through the Box Office. Here are your three easy-to-use options:

  1. Call 269-927-8700, Monday-Friday, 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. (except holidays).
  2. Come in person to the Box Office located on the south side of The Mendel Center, Monday through Friday, 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. (except holidays).
  3. Go online. To buy individual tickets, click on your favorite speaker’s photo below and follow the prompts. This 24/7 service includes a convenience fee.
  • If you are ordering more than two individual speaker tickets at one time, we recommend that you call or go in person to the Box Office during its open hours. This should save you time and there are no fees for these Box Office services.
  • The Box Office accepts Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, cash and checks made out to Lake Michigan College.
  • When you place your ticket order, you may choose to get your tickets by email, mobile, at the will call window or by mail.

Have ordering questions?

See the answers on our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page. If you have other questions, please contact The Mendel Center Box Office at 269-927-8700 or BoxOffice@lakemichigancollege.edu.
