FVCC Invites Community to Ice Cream Social at the Site of New Library

FVCC will host a complimentary ice cream social for students and the community from noon to 1 p.m. on Monday, May 14 at the site of the future Library & Learning Commons. Sponsored by the FVCC Foundation and Cold Stone Creamery, the event will celebrate the expansion of campus and the conclusion of the 2017-18 academic year. President Jane Karas will share an update on the FVCC ONE Campaign with details about the Library & Learning Commons.

As an addition to the existing Rebecca Chaney Broussard Center for Nursing and Health Science, the 12,000-square-foot Library & Learning Commons will include a library with leading-edge technologies, collaborative spaces for small group projects, a student lounge area, multi-media services, a Makerspace and a virtual reality lab.

Thanks to a $2.5 million gift from the Broussard family earlier this year and other generous donations, construction of the new building will begin this month with plans to open in January 2019.

Fundraising continues for the second phase of the FVCC ONE Campaign to build a 50,000-square-foot College Center with a lecture and performance hall, a multi-purpose activity center, an outdoor amphitheater and a secured art gallery.
