• May 27, 2015, EUGENE, Ore. - Lane Community College is nearly finished with renovations of the student center building.

    Demolition started December 15, 2013.

    The center building was originally built more than 50 years ago.

    "It was really built for students that were in the 20th century," said Todd Smith, "and now today's students in the 21st century needs a lot more access to technology, and different types of areas that enhance their learning experience."

    Smith said the building renovations are aimed to help students achieve their educational goals.

    The building houes the library, tutoring center and 17 group study rooms.

    "Technology is there where they can display projects on flat screen monitor, and show each other as they go through their projects," Smith said.

    The building will be a silver-certified LEED building, meaning it's designed to be environmentally friendly. The renovated building is expected to use 20 percent less energy than before.

    Students will also have more choices for lunch with added food services.

    The total budgeted cost is $35.1 million. Of that, $21.3 million comes from bond levy funds.
