Expansion made possible by $13.3 million state bond funding in 2012

On Thursday, October 2, South Central College will celebrate the expansion of its Faribault campus at 1225 Third Street SW in Faribault. The event will include a ribbon cutting at 4 p.m., followed by a Grand Opening from 4:15 – 7 p.m. All are invited to attend and enjoy refreshments, prizes and tour the impressive new campus areas.      

“This is a celebration for the entire community and region, as we mark our institution’s 50th year in Faribault,” said South Central College President Dr. Annette Parker.  

South Central College received $13.3 from the 2012 Minnesota State Bonding Bill for the expansion, and broke ground on the project in April 2013. Improvements include new student spaces, labs and classrooms.

“This incredible expansion was already underway when I joined South Central in July 2013,” said Dr. Parker. “The anticipation of this new modern campus was just one of the reasons I was so excited to come here. Now that the vision has come to fruition, it is rewarding to see our students, faculty, staff and community members coming together to learn and grow in this wonderful new environment.”
