Remember When? MTI Expansion

Posted on in Alumni News

image009It was 27 years ago that the Business, Nursing, Accounting, and Sales, Marketing and Management students and faculty moved from lower North Mankato to the current North Mankato Campus of South Central College. In addition to classroom space, building improvements also provided for a 400-seat Conference Center, an Auto Body Shop, library, student lounge and an expanded Cafeteria and Bookstore.

Prior to moving the 1,100 students to the North Mankato “hilltop”, classes for Mankato Technical Institute (now known as South Central College) were held in the school district’s Wheeler Campus Building, which we currently know as Garfield Elementary.

Students First... Awards Follow

Posted on in Alumni News

It’s always about the students, but this month South Central College faculty, staff and volunteers will be recognized by two different organizations for their innovative approach to student learning.

First, on November 17th, the South Central College Ag Symposium will be recognized with the Brian Fazio Business Education Partnership Award.  Presented by Greater Mankato Growth, Inc., at the Greater Mankato Business Awards & Hall of Fame, the award recognizes partnerships that enhance education and business in Greater Mankato. SCC’s Ag Symposium is a unique one-day event that integrates national speakers, regional industry leaders and current students for a full day of learning about the new tools and new rules in agriculture today.

Second, the Minnesota High Tech Association (MHTA) has named South Central College as a finalist in the Education Technology Award category for the 2015 Tekne Awards, which will be held on November 18. The Tekne Awards annually recognize Minnesota’s best and brightest technology users and developers in innovation, development, education, commercialization and management. SCC was nominated for its “iMEC” distance learning model, which gives students access to the college’s Mechatronics program anytime, anywhere.
