Cuyahoga Community College is the oldest and largest community college in Cuyahoga County, Ohio, United States. It was founded in 1962 and opened its doors in 1966. It is evident that each campus is well–attended to, because there always seems to be work in progress for improvements. The campuses include the Eastern Campus, the Metropolitan, Western, the Brunswick Campus and Westshore.
There are currently three projects under construction at the Western Campus. The first project is called, Adjunct Space/D3 Grant Renovation. The D3 means degree in three. It is designed to assist students in completing their degree within three academic years. Grant House will be housed in the former adjunct faculty space, while a new, renovated area is being designated to accommodate adjunct offices and workplaces.
The New Student Lounge is the second project that is under construction. It is located on the lower level on this campus (next to Java City). The area is made up of two classrooms which is approximately 2,000 square feet in size. “This Lounge will have computer stations and tables in where students can study and do their homework with classmates, professors or tutors. It will be opened between the end of March and the beginning of April,’’ says Dr. Ron Liss, who is the president at Western Campus.
The Roof Replacement has been completed in the business building and the theatre.
