Albany Campus Remodel Projects
With approval of additional state funding for Albany Campus projects, the college is continuing to develop plans for renovation of student areas on campus, including a remodel of Takena Hall. One change in the works is to allow students to make payments in Takena Hall, rather than having to trek across campus to the Business Office. Danny Aynes and Jess Jacobs are working on the requirements needed for that service, which will allow students to register and pay for their classes in one location. Construction is scheduled to start in the summer of 2019.
New “Makerspace” Being Planned in Lebanon
The LBCC Advancement Office and the Extended Learning department are spearheading an effort to create a local "Makerspace" in an LBCC-owned building in downtown Lebanon. This community-driven learning, design and fabrication hub will provide a location for people to explore and collaborate on projects and ideas. The space will be designed to encourage discovery and innovation through shared tools, resources, and knowledge. The City of Lebanon, the Lebanon Chamber of Commerce, the Small Business Development Center, and other local partners are in support of the idea. LBCC Community Education plans to offer classes in the space, and participants in the JOBS program plan to run a bike repair shop and help with staffing the facility.
