The Greenbrier Community College Center of Bluefield State College is preparing to relocate to its new home, the historically-significant former Greenbrier College (Greenbrier Hall) facility in downtown Lewisburg, following the close of Fall Semester, 1997 classes and exams. Dr. David Perkins, GCCC Assistant Provost/Director, has announced that GCCC offices will be closed December 17, 1997-January 2, 1998 during the move. The renovated 47,000 square foot facility will reopen Monday, January 5, 1998. General registration for Spring Semester, 1998 classes will be conducted January 8-9. "Everyone associated with GCCC is excited about the possibilities Greenbrier Hall represents for expanding educational opportunity for the citizens of the Greater Greenbrier Valley," Perkins noted. "The spacious, well-equipped facility will permit new classes, new programs, and new methods for delivering existing programs. With new educational partnerships, such as the executive master's degree program in business administration offered by the WVU School of Business through BSC's GCCC distance learning classroom, we see the new building becoming the hub for all higher education in the region." The renovation and relocation of the new home for the Greenbrier Community College Center of BSC follows an extensive fund-raising campaign throughout the Greenbrier Valley and the significant efforts of community leadership in the region, Bluefield State College, GCCC's faculty and staff, and the Greenbrier College Foundation.
