Genesee Community College Schedules New Medina Campus Center Ribbon Cutting

A grand opening celebration for the Medina Campus Center located at 11470 Maple Ridge Road has been scheduled for Wednesday, October 10, from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm. The event will be free and open to the public with a ribbon-cutting ceremony scheduled for 5:00 pm.

Genesee expects that the new building will be completed by September 5, 2007. Through the remaining month of September, important internal work such as installing furniture, lab fixtures, and the technology infrastructure to connect the campus center to the College’s computer network and library will be completed. Genesee Community College anticipates beginning to offer classes at the Medina Campus Center on Monday, October 1, 2007.

Since Fall 2007 semester classes begin August 27, Orleans-Niagara BOCES has graciously allowed the College to schedule daytime classes at the Career and Technical Education Center until the Medina Campus Center officially opens on October 1, and the Medina School District has generously agreed to schedule evening classes at Medina High School for the same period. Registered students will be receiving complete information regarding their own schedules in the mail and through email. They may also call 585-798-1688 for more information or go to:

“The additional four-week construction period to fully complete essential data, technology networking will ensure the new Medina Campus Center is well worth the wait,” Jim Simon, Associate Dean, said.

“As we near the opening of the Medina Campus Center, I want to extend my personal thanks to the many civic, educational, and business leaders who offered support and encouragement in the planning of the Center,” Stuart Steiner, President of Genesee Community College, said. “We are committed to working tirelessly to make the Medina Center a source of continuing pride and a valuable resource for the community.”
