MISSION COLLEGE COMPLETES
Members of Mission College's student services staff are back in the building they left 20 months ago, but the place is nothing like it used to be.
More than 3,000 square feet of space have been added to the wing now occupied by the admissions, counseling, EOP&S and financial aid staff. In addition, the 6,000-square-foot office space that existed prior to expansion has been completely remodeled.
The $1.3 million expansion is the first construction project completed in the Los Angeles Community College District with funds from the voter-approved Proposition A.
"It's a great distinction to complete the first Proposition A project," said Dr. Adriana Barrera, college president. "We're very grateful to the voters in the district who recognized the benefit of improving our community college campuses."
Highlights of the expansion
Soon to be installed are 12 computer kiosks through which students will be able to access a large amount of information. At a touch, the state-of-the-art computers will provide student records, information about financial aid and classes, and can be used to make counseling appointments.
