NCC Monroe Founder’s Week
As we are nearing the construction completion of Northampton Community College’s Monroe Campus, NCC held their Annual Founder’s Week celebration. Hi-lights from the article, via www.northampton.edu, are below. Photos courtesy of NCC Flickr.
“In honor of Founders Week, several of those students joined Northampton’s president, Dr. Mark Erickson, in completing the planting of the first tree and colorful mums on a brand new campus which will be able to accommodate up to 5000 students and many community activities when it opens next fall.
Located on 80 acres of land at the center of Monroe County, the full-service campus will feature technology-enhanced classrooms, science and computer labs, meeting rooms, art studios and galleries, a state-of-the-art library, child care center, food court, student activity areas, faculty and staff offices, service areas, and athletic fields designed to complement the natural beauty of the site and to have minimal impact on the environment.”
These were also the first students to put on construction hard hats and tour the campus buildings!
“The oohs and ahhs were audible as the students toured the new “digs.” What did they love the most? The spectacular views, the spacious library with light fixtures right out of Star Trek, the gym, the food court, and the bathrooms. Lots of bathrooms! No more lines!”
We are so proud, here at MKSD, to be a part of this amazing new Campus… Stay tuned for more updates as the construction progresses!
