On Wednesday, El Paso Community College (EPCC) held a celebration to mark the opening of its new building at the Northwest campus.
“Attending and graduating college is becoming more and more important, because by 2020, 65 percent of all jobs will require a degree or certificate,” Dr. William Serrata, EPCC President, said. “This facility is designed to provide students innovative learning spaces in a more campus-like environment.”
The new project will provide additional classrooms and three biology labs. It will also include a Flexitorium: a large, multi-purpose event and auditorium space.
The Flexitorium will offer flexible seating arrangements and audio-visual equipment conducive to innovative teaching and special events.
“To further enhance the student experience and provide a more campus-like environment, the Northwest Class-Lab project focuses on the development of a clear point of entry for visitors and students, something the campus has lacked since its initial development,” EPCC officials added.
This is the third of six construction projects to finish as part of the College’s Master Plan.
