Baton Rouge Community College unveiled to the public its new $3.5 million Westside Campus in Plaquemine -- a 15,547-square-foot facility that boasts four classrooms, two industrial shops, a health science skills lab and a training room.
The facility becomes BRCC's seventh campus extension apart from its main campus in Baton Rouge.
The Westside Campus is now offering LPN, medical assistant and certified nursing assistant classes as well as millwright, pipefitting, electrical and instrumentation courses. Welding classes will be taught in partnership with Plaquemine High School.
Chancellor Andrea Lewis Miller said on Thursday classes kicked off at the Westside Campus on Aug. 26, with more than 100 students now enrolled in the credit and noncredit classes the facility offers.
