At its annual community breakfast May 18, the University of Cincinnati Clermont College dedicated its new West Woods Academic Center building with a ribbon cutting ceremony.
The West Woods Academic Center, which is the fifth building built on the campus in six years, is a two-story, 14,000 square foot addition at the west end of the Peter-Jones Building, connected via a two-story bridge.
The building contains six classrooms, 20 full time faculty offices, and 20 adjunct faculty cubicles. There are also two conference rooms and a student lounge area.
With the Clermont College experiencing a 30 percent growth over the last four years, the addition will provide the college with needed space for instruction and faculty offices.
Clermont College Dean of Students David Devier said that the Academic Center is a welcome addition to the campus.
