A complete remodel of the second floor had been finished just in time to welcome students back to the college for the fall 2015 semester.

While faculty handed out free t-shirts, agendas and food, the event allowed for the students to view and enjoy the new space.

The renovations, which took place during the summer, included updates such as built-in charging stations, new display cabinets, a student club counter, writeable and display surfaces and several other modernized upgrades.
