BEATRICE – Southeast Community College plans to hold a groundbreaking next Tuesday on the Beatrice Campus, as the college prepares to construct a fifteen thousand square foot student dining hall and new 153-bed housing unit.
The groundbreaking is set for 1:30 p.m., next Tuesday.
Campus President Bob Morgan says a contractor has been chosen for the construction work that will be getting underway.
:30 “understand college”
The new housing will boost space for students to provide living quarters for about 400. Once built, the aging Hoover Hall dorm area will be taken out of service.
Morgan says the dining hall project allows the college to have a full meal plan for students.
:25 “very, very nice”
Completion of the residential facilities and dining hall will coincide with SCC’s switch from a quarter-based, to a semester system.
Southeast Community College has also received Postsecondary Coordinating Commission approval to construct a general classroom building of about fifty thousand to sixty thousand square feet.
The classroom building will replace Jackson Hall.
