    Christanna Campus

    During a period from 1966 to 1968, a committee composed of local business, civic, industrial, and political leaders were appointed by the governing bodies of counties and cities in Region 20 for the purpose of promoting and establishing campuses where needed. In 1968, the plan for building the Christanna Campus of Southside Virginia Community College near Alberta, Virginia, was approved by the State Board for Community Colleges, and appropriations were made for its construction. The local advisory board for the college was established in July 1969. The Christanna Campus was opened in September 1970 with approximately 55,600 square feet located on over 100 acres. Christanna Campus
