BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A $13 million communications and arts center at Bismarck State College meant to accommodate the school’s growing student population has officially opened.

The state-of-the-art facility was funded through a $13 million appropriation from the state and more than $600,000 in donations and matching funds raised by the school.

Gov. Jack Dalrymple toured the facility earlier this month. He says that building “high-tech facilities” such as the Communications and Creative Arts Center at BSC is essential to providing students “the skills they need to meet the demands of North Dakota’s future workforce.”

The center provides nearly 40,000 square feet of educational space and includes a modernized library. It houses the visual arts and communications programs, as well as a campus gallery, offices and performance venues for student and community activities.
