December 21, 2017 – Lassen College Campus Renovations

With any aging facility, continuous updates and renovations are not only a necessity but crucial to the happiness, health and well-being of those who work at and visit the environment. Last spring and summer, two major improvements were completed on the Lassen College campus. The Nursing program moved into their new space in March and the Cougar Dorm Café was completed in August.

Nursing had been located in the College’s boardroom for two months (nursing porgam , which also previously housed the student bookstore. Nursing was relocated into the Creative Arts building, taking over the 2,264 old photo lab. Nursing instructors and students have been provided a completely remodeled, state-of-the-art education training ground, that includes a lab area, classroom with distance learning components (funded by USDA Grant), phlebotomy lab, a study area for students with computers, a director’s office, three additional offices for nursing staff, and a storage/prep area for staff.

“The newly renovated nursing center is the only of its kind in our region,” said Director of Nursing, Christi Myers. “The space was carefully created with student success in mind. Our amazing contractor (Kenenivich Construction) and all LCC Maintenance staff that worked on this area took into consideration the needs of our growing programs. They created an environment that has been vital to the success of our programs and that is appealing and comfortable for our students.”

To address the need for healthy food options for students that reside on campus, the administration, coaching staff and ASB identified the need to design an area to prepare meals when the cafeteria was closed. The concept quickly took flight and grew into not only a kitchen, but also a place for the students to gather.

The Cougar Dorm Café is a professional kitchen featuring stainless steel appliances, prep tables, a large sink, two microwaves, two induction ovens, and four hot plates. In addition, the kitchen includes pots, pans and utensils. The Café is open 5 pm to 10 pm and is monitored by a staff member, students and resident advisors.

“Offering access to healthy food options to our students is a top priority for the administration,” said Lassen College President and Superintendent, Dr. Marlon Hall. “We wanted to create more than just a kitchen – an environment where our students can congregate, socialize and grow as students and young adults.”

The Lassen dormitory is more than 40 years old (1970) and has been home to thousands of alumni. The two-story structure just went through a major renovation with new flooring, sprinkler system and other upgrades. Lassen College is one of only 10 community colleges that offers living quarters to its students.

The scholarships total nearly $80,000 in financial support for those enrolling at LCC for the 2017-18 school year.
