Officials Tour MCC Downtown Campus

May 3, 2016

Monroe Community College president Anne Kress and County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo were given a tour of MCC's new downtown campus on State Street in Rochester.

The project is far from completion, and is still an active construction zone, but Kress says the space has changed so much, it's not hard to imagine their vision for a finished building.

"How much that reflects sort of the aspirations and hopes and dreams of our students, how well it will serve the ac programs they're looking for, how well we can incorporate career and technical education into those spaces."

The first class of students at MCC's Downtown Campus are expected to come in the fall semester of 2017.
