A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held outside of Camden County College's new $30 million science building on Wednesday.
The new facility, which is slated to open in January, is part of an $83 million expansion at the school's Blackwood campus announced by Camden County College officials and the Camden County Board of Chosen Freeholders in 2005.
The three-story, 107,000-square-foot building houses 10 biology labs, six chemistry labs, a physics lab and 24 classrooms.
The facility will allow Camden County College to expand its dental, hospitality and practical nursing programs.
In addition to the new labs and classrooms, the new science building features extra space for the Dental Hygiene Clinic, including 25 extra dental chairs and a dental materials lab.
“This new facility will keep Camden County College in the forefront of providing quality and affordable education for years to come,” Freeholder Ian Leonard, liaison to Camden County College, said. “Camden County College is recognized as the best county college in the state and the nation, and we are fortunate to have it right here in our own county.”
