Wachholz College Center

The first venue of its kind in northwest Montana, the Paul D. Wachholz College Center expands access to educational and cultural opportunities for campus and the community.

Named after Paul D. Wachholz, the Wachholz College Center is a uniquely designed 58,000 square-foot facility that eloquently combines two distinct venues into one stunning building on the campus of Flathead Valley Community College.

Opened in November 2022, the College Center features:

  • A performance and lecture hall with superb acoustics to accommodate exceptional educational and cultural programming while also serving as the performance home of the Glacier Symphony.
  • A multi-purpose activity complex, including both a fitness center and gymnasium, to provide a space for large events and meet the demand for campus and community recreational opportunities.
  • An art and exhibition gallery, intimate recital hall, stunning lobby and an outdoor amphitheater complete the facility, providing multiple spaces for unique cultural experiences and special events.
