Southside Virginia Community College recently had a ribbon cutting for its new Learning Resources & Student Services Building on the John H. Daniel Campus in Keysville, VA.
The ribbon was cut by Virginia Delegate Tommy Wright and also in attendance was Virginia Senator Frank Ruff.
During the ceremony Dr. John Cavan, SVCC President said, “This building is a prize in Southside VA. It was my dream to bring a facility like this to SVCC as I ride off into the sunset.” Dr. Cavan is retiring on July 31, 2014.
The two story building will house student services, a career center, counseling, admissions, business office, financial aid and a cafeteria on the first floor and the library with several study rooms on the second floor. This building will allow the college to consolidate all of the student service functions into one location as well as provided badly needed student activity and study space. The new library will be state of the art and will better serve today's learning resource needs.
The building will allow for the elimination of three modular trailers and will free up space in the main instructional building for an enlarged bookstore and nursing space. It will also provide more faculty office space as well as room for the middle college.
The newly constructed building is located to the north of the main instructional building and was built by Kenbridge Construction Inc.
