Southeast Community College unveils new $30 million facelift

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Southeast Community College in Lincoln had a special ribbon-cutting ceremony Friday.

The college unveiled the $30 million new Student and Academic Support Center.

It has more than 10 new spaces, including an activities center, veterans connect center and multiple study rooms.

Students hope it changes the image of community colleges.

“I think that bringing buildings like this into a more modern light helps with the image and allows students from high school or other nontraditional students like me, to see community college as exactly what it is, an incredible option for college,” Student Senate President Emma Lindsey said. “Other than that, just the amount of space allows for more tutoring, which is always good, as well as space for students to study.”

The new space doubles as a wellness center, which offers free therapy for students, along with various support services.

There’s also a virtual learning center and recording studio for media arts.
