Open House
Showcases Remodeled Wings
Sauk Valley Community College welcomed over 400 guests as it held an
open house this April showcasing its newly renovated technology and
radiology wings.
“e whole experience has been very positive,”
SVCC President Dr. George Mihel
said.
“To see the support from our community at the open house and other
events helps us move forward to making changes to fit our students’
needs and create an inviting college experience. Our next
project, the remodeling of our biology and chemistry labs,
will be completed this fall as well, and we can’t wait!”
e 15,770 square foot technology wing (which many
may remember as the automotive area and vocational
technology) will house lab-based programs in wind
energy, welding, electricity, HVAC, electronics,
hydraulics and more. e 3,350 square foot radiology
wing was redesigned with two new classrooms and
two fully-equipped X-ray labs (one with digital image
technology).
is vision, now reality, will allow for more
flexibility for changes in curriculum and technical
programs as SVCC continues to meet the
training and educational needs of business,
industry and the local work force.
