HANNIBAL, Mo. (WGEM) – After years of planning and fundraising, the new Moberly Area Community College held its grand opening Friday in Hannibal.
Classes started at the new 16-thousand square foot facility earlier this month. The expansion was needed as enrollment outgrew its current facility.
The building features a science lab, resource center, student study areas amd can also be used as a storm shelter.
“when we have bad weather we can just stay in one area and we don’t have to travel somewhere else,” Sophomore Stephanie Willing said. “It’s nice having air conditioning when the summer comes so we’re not dying in the heat.”
College officials say the building was constructed in a way that they can add on in the future if needed.
