Community College expansion work swings into action Project to double space at Arundel Center North

April 24, 1996|By Consella A. Lee | Consella A. Lee,SUN STAFF

Construction crews have begun knocking out walls and rearranging heating and air-conditioning ducts and electrical wires as part of a $700,000 project to expand Anne Arundel Community College programs at the Arundel Center North.

The work, which began Friday, will nearly double the college's space at the Glen Burnie building. It will create six classrooms, computer labs, two seminar rooms, and space for academic and student services.

The renovations will allow the college to increase its offerings and services in Glen Burnie, and for the first time offer daytime credit programs as well, said Debbie Shaughney, school spokeswoman.

Although some college programs and staff already have moved back to the Arnold campus to make room for the construction work, the college registration and student services staff will remain at the center until students complete final exams in late May, Ms. Shaughney said.

Summer classes and student services will be at North County High School at 10 E. First Ave. Classes that have been at Meade High School will remain there.

The project is to be completed in August, in time for the start of the fall semester. It will include an interactive distance learning classroom that links the college with two- and four-year colleges and universities across the state.

It is the same system that was installed last fall at the Arnold campus, Ms. Shaughney said.
