Students and faculty jumped into the Spring 2020 semester on January 21. As students return, the College continues to celebrate its 50th anniversary and work progresses on the new $10.1 million Learning Commons, one of the largest capital projects in the College’s history, which will completely rebuild and reprogram two floors in the Begley Building.
