State Rep. Tanya Pullin said while the region has received its share of bad economic news in recent years with the loss of many jobs, the new EastPark campus is evidence “the region will not be slowed by this bad news but that we will continue to move forward.”
The new building has two chemistry labs and a biology lab, nine computer labs, a full-service library and a Barnes & Noble bookstore.
Programs in electronic, industrial maintenance, machine tool and welding technology already are at the EastPark campus, and programs in applied process technology, air conditioning, computer-aided drafting and design, construction carpentry and culinary arts are being moved from ACTC’s Roberts Drive campus into the new EastPark building.
Programs in business administration, information technology, office systems technology and some transfer and general education courses are being moved from the College Drive campus to the EastPark campus.
“This will be a full-service campus,” said Greg Adkins, president and CEO of ACTC. “This is not just a campus for vocational and technical programs. Anything you need you will be able to get out here.”
