Eastern Gateway Community College keeps on growing in the Valley
By DENISE DICK
About 684 of Eastern Gateway Community College’s 2,590 students enrolled this spring take classes at the Valley Center, which opened downtown last fall.
The college opened in the Plaza Building at 101 E. Federal St., after first offering classes in a former Forum Health building and then at Choffin Career and Technical Center.
The first phase of renovations of the new quarters involved an information commons area to provide students with access to computers and media resources.
Another section includes student services such as admissions, financial aid, advising and tutoring.
“Work on the remaining class and lab spaces as well as the student commons will be completed by Aug. 1,” Ann Koon, college spokeswoman, said in an email. “Three quadrants are basically complete and a small part of the fourth is finished.”
Anthony D’Apolito, director of operations, said the center includes several classrooms, most of which include computers, a math emporium, room for distance learning, book store, nursing lab and other facilities.
