LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - Construction on South Louisiana Community College’s new academic building is expected to begin this summer, and students could move into the new building by fall 2016.

The Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/1J1jey2) the college celebrated the start of the $17.1 million project and the $2.1 million in community donations that kept the project on track during Monday’s groundbreaking ceremony at the Lafayette campus.

SLCC Chancellor Natalie Harder says the project is part of more than $250 million in community and technical college projects planned across the state that were approved by the Legislature in 2013 with the caveat that each college raise 12.5 percent of construction costs.

SLCC was able to raise its needed $2.1 million.
