Veteran’s Center set for grand opening

Grossmont College Veteran’s Center.

On Feb. 15 Grossmont College will celebrate the grand opening of a new building that will provide a new home for the Grossmont College’s Veterans’ Center, along with classrooms and resources for math and science students. The 61,390-square-foot building will house the Grossmont College math, earth science, and anthropology classrooms, along with a STEM tutoring center and the Math, Engineering and Science Achievement program. MESA supports students in STEM by providing resources including tutoring, counseling, and a study center. The veterans’ center will serve as a centralized home for veteran services at Grossmont College, serving more than 500 active duty, reserve service members, veterans and their families. The building features modern classrooms with multiple electronic screens to display information, and classroom desks with computer monitors that can be lowered out of the way when not needed. Faculty offices are located near the math and science tutoring center so students can work closely with their instructors and tutors.

“This is a state-of-the-art facility that our veterans and STEM students deserve,” said Grossmont College President Denise Whisen¬hunt in a press release. “It offers a modern and well-equipped environment so that our students can be successful in achieving their education goals.”

The ribbon-cutting will be held from 4-6 p.m. at the Grossmont College campus at 8800 Grossmont College Drive in El Cajon. The event is open to the public, and an RSVP is requested. Tours of the building will be offered with an opportunity to meet students, faculty, and staff.
