(AURORA, COLO) - Columbia College-Aurora will dedicate a new campus facility at 4 p.m. June 1 at 14241 E. Fourth Ave., Aurora. The campus relocated from its previous location in April.
The new location provides enhanced classroom space, a new student lounge, more convenient parking, easier access to the Interstate, improved testing facilities and a new computer lab.
"This move is a win-win for Columbia College and its students," said David Mull, campus director. "It will better serve us in a variety of ways, including improved facilities and easier access for our students."
The campus also is celebrating its 30-year anniversary this year. Originally founded in Denver in 1975, the campus served active duty military personnel and retired military and corporate students from major companies in the area during its early years. The campus moved to Aurora in 1979 after enrollments outpaced available space. Today, it is part of Columbia College's network of 30 extended campuses around the country and continues to serve civilian and military learners in the Aurora and Denver areas. It offers on-campus and online degrees in business administration, computer information systems, criminal justice administration, general studies/interdisciplinary studies and psychology.
Columbia College serves more than 20,000 students nationwide each year through its Day Campus, Evening Campus, Online Campus, 30 Nationwide/Extended Campuses and Graduate Studies Program. The college was founded as Christian Female College in Missouri in 1851.
