Students taking classes at the College of Charleston North Campus this fall will step into a new building equipped with technologically sophisticated classrooms that improve the College’s ability to bring many of its programs to working adults and traditional students throughout the tri-county region.
“The new North Campus facility was designed specifically to promote group learning and interactive teaching, and in our classrooms faculty can digitally capture and archive lectures for online review,” says Godfrey Gibbison, dean of the North Campus. “The new facility vastly improves our ability to provide students with a pathway to complete their undergraduate degree in our Bachelor of Professional Studies program, or to enhance their job skills through our graduate certificate and graduate degree offerings.”
The new 50,000-square-foot building, located just off I-526 at 3800 Paramount Drive, includes nine classrooms with two-way videoconferencing capabilities, along with a library, study rooms, a student services center, a tutoring center and a student lounge. About 300 free parking spaces service the facility.
“This new building will allow for academic program growth for the college and the Lowcountry Graduate Center in order to meet the needs of the tri-county region,” says Steve Osborne, the College’s executive vice president for business affairs. “As the population in the region continues to grow, the College of Charleston stands ready to fulfill the community’s current and future educational needs.”
Fall semester classes will begin Aug. 19 at the new location. For more information, visit the North Campus website.
