PRINCETON- A local college is expanding into a new building this week in Princeton.
New River Community and Technical College will be moving into a new location on 1001 Mercer Street. Right now, they don't have anything in the building but they plan on having everything ready in time for classes to start. College officials say they've been working on this project for a few years and are excited to get started. They will be holding an building opening ceremony this Thursday.
"Moving into this new building really kind of affords us the opportunity to expand some of our classroom offerings the next three to four years that we're hoping to really kind of increase our enrollment but provide a needed service in that area for students who are looking for other options," said Dr. Marshall Washington.
Classes begin in the new building on August 18th.
