Hudson Valley Community College is celebrating the opening of its new, $47 million science center.
The two-year school has seen a slight decline in enrollment, but officials say the new building will be a key attraction to get more students on campus.
After a ribbon cutting, Hudson Valley Community College took NewsChannel 13 on a tour of the new science center.
It's three floors packed with state of the art scientific equipment, 25 labs and 11 classrooms and study spaces.
“This would not have occurred if we didn't have everyone working together. That is really the message,” said Andrew Mantonak, HVCC President.
The doors officially opened here back on August 26th for about 7,500 students. They're enrolled in 25 different academic degree and certificate programs in science, technology, engineering and mathematics and healthcare related fields.
