SCC Opens New Student Center

SCC Opens New Student Center
By Reporter Staff

Solano College has opened a new Student Services Center in Fairfield.
The $15.5 million, 37,000 square-foot two-story facility opened to students this week and combines student services into a convenient one-stop information center for students.

In November 2002, voters successfully passed Measure G, a $124.5 million bond for new Solano Community College facilities and upgrades to the existing campus infrastructure.

The bond includes funds for the newly opened Student Services Center on the Fairfield campus, a new Vallejo Center, and a new Vacaville Center, which is scheduled to open in Fall 2009.

"We have reached another milestone toward the full realization of the completed projects with completion of the Student Services Building on the Fairfield campus," said Gerry Fisher, SCC superintendent and president.

The new building houses several departments including admissions and records, counseling, the Campus Information Center, programs and services for disabled students, veterans affairs, financial aid, and Equal Opportunity Programs and Services.

Other new construction and renovation projects on the Fairfield campus include renovation of the Physical Education/Athletics complex, the career technical education building, comprehensive remodel of the existing Student Union Building, (targeted to be completed in summer 2008), new restrooms and the recently completed construction of a new office annex for faculty.

"Through careful planning and monitoring, the projects have come in on time with minimal disruption of the educational programs during the construction phase,' Fisher said.

'It is heartening to see how far the District has come in meeting the future higher education needs of our county."
