Southwestern Michigan College in Niles shows off renovations

Niles, Mich. Southwestern Michigan College has a new look.

The Niles Campus unveiled their renovations Saturday afternoon.

It's the first of three phases of a three year construction project.

On Saturday, the college gave the public a peek at their new student service center, scale-up science lab and student commons.

There were also tours of the rest of campus.

Officials say the renovations are geared towards current and prospective students.

"For our first phase, it’s all about students and that's how we spend our money as SWM College,” said Dr. Stacy Horner, dean of the Niles campus. “We always focus on students, what's best for the students and you can see from our beautiful surroundings that what we've done is we've built this like a hotel lobby or maybe a up-scale club at the airport. So, you can just sit back relax and study."

Those who attended the grand re-opening also had a chance to learn about advanced technology programs like welding and precision machining.
