Campus Infrastructure

Our Main campus has buildings that were constructed in the early 1970’s through the mid 1980’s As a result; the infrastructure of the buildings is aging. Due to the vigilance and expertise of our maintenance staff, we have in most cases exceeded the useful life of our infrastructure equipment. Several systems are in need of replacement due to age and/or the inability to locate replacement parts.

In winter 2006, the College replaced 39 unit ventilators in the Library Building and the Science and Technology Building. Plans are to continue replacing the units throughout campus. Approved Protection, Health, and Safety Projects that are being moved forward include lighting and ceiling replacement in the gym locker/dressing areas, replacement of the gymnasium building air handlers, emergency lighting improvements (Campus wide), replacement of the restroom exhaust fans, replacement of zone pumps, heating system improvements, and the installation of an emergency generator in the Gymnasium Building.

In late spring of 2007, the construction of the 44,000 square foot Health & Professional Careers Building was completed. After the building was finished, the remaining temporary buildings were demolished. Programs located in the Health & Professional Careers building include: Child Care, Cosmetology, Dental Assisting, Massage Therapy, Physical Therapy Assistant, Respiratory Therapy, and Radiologic Technology.

Lifelong Learning Center, a 17,950-square-foot-one-story building situated between the Health & Professional Careers Building and the Health & Business Building, was constructed to provide secure and efficient facilities for non-credit Continuing/Community Education, Art Studio/Gallery, Foreign Language and Cultural Arts, Business and Industry Training Programs, and provide the constituents of District #501 with a conference room that will accommodate as many as 300 people, a catering kitchen, and a large multi-purpose divided space with movable partitions for six classrooms. It moves the College forward in meeting the instructional and continuing education needs of the district residents and businesses. Adorning the beautiful Lifelong Learning Center is a towering 50-feet-high clock tower.
