New Innovation Center to provide students with futuristic learning experience

New West Hall Innovation Center to provide NMC students with futuristic learning experience.

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich., (WPBN/WGTU) -- This time next year students at Northwestern Michigan College will have a new place to learn.

The 50-year-old West Hall on the Traverse City campus is getting demolished.

It's being replaced with the West Hall 21st Century Innovation Center project.

The new 54,000 square foot building will have a multi-story library, and incorporate new ways of learning with innovative academic and simulation spaces.

"Forget the lecture halls of past. This innovation center is going to be hands on, in depth, experiential, and really give students the tools they need to prepare them for success in the future," says Diana Fairbanks, the executive director of public relations, marketing, and communications at NMC.

Right now crews are getting everything ready in order to demolish the old West Hall, and the goal is to break ground on the new West Hall Innovation Center in late September.
