Video: Atlantic Cape Community College Breaks Ground on New Career CenterPosted:
MAYS LANDING, N.J. – Atlantic Cape Community College held a formal groundbreaking for their Student Success and Career Planning Center.
Though the official groundbreaking event was held on Thursday, construction for the $10.3 million two-story building was already underway. Once completed, the facility will have a number of features and resources to assist students when it comes to making decisions about their careers.
The first floor of the building will be for student life, and the second floor will include a career guidance center and will provide teachers with more available space to hold classes.
"I know for being in this field for 30 years that students that figure out what their career and academic goals are earlier in their academic career, who have a goal they're working towards always are more successful, more likely to be retained to stay in school and much more likely to graduate," said Dr. Mitchell Levy, vice-president of Student Affairs at Atlantic Cape Community College.
The project is funded through the New Jersey Building Our Future Bond Act and Atlantic County. Officials hope to have it completed in spring of 2018.
