Midlands Technical College officially opened its Learning Resource Center on its Beltline campus last week.

The state-of-the-art Learning Resource Center replaces the 24,000-square-foot campus library that was constructed in 1967.

Perri O’Connor, a student at the college, believes the center provides new opportunity for students. 

“It’s quiet, so it’s a great environment to get stuff done and when you walk into the library itself they provide you with all new computers and printers and just a range of things that you need to be a successful student."

The center has classrooms, study rooms, dedicated tutoring spaces and a variety of other student resource rooms spread throughout its three floors. It also has more than 100 computers available for students throughout the two levels of the main library area.

In addition, it has a life-skills center that provides assistance in finding a job.

As part of its strategic plan, Midlands Technical College is working to integrate life skills such as effective communication, teamwork, punctuality, integrity, work ethic, self-direction and interpersonal skills into 90 percent of its programs.
