JACKSON, Tenn. – Students, faculty and staff of Jackson State Community College celebrated the grand opening of their newly renovated student center, Wednesday.

Leaders cut a ribbon to signify the project’s completion. The renovation project took nine months and cost about $1.5 million.

Employees and students said they are enjoying the new additions that include computers to allow students extra study opportunities. The project also brought students better access to staff and services.

“We know that student engagement and commitment to their education is huge in their own success, and to have a facility that brings the campus community together where they can interact with each other as students, but also with the faculty and staff will enhance their experience greatly,” said Dr. Bill Seymour, Vice-President of Student Services.

Jackson State Community College has about 4,000 students enrolled for the spring 2013 semester.
