Lakeland College is a familiar fixture in the higher education landscape in Madison, having offered evening degree programs locally since 1979.
But Lakeland officials believe the newly-completed facility, which is located at 1650 Pankratz Street, positions the college better than ever to deliver academic programs and services to its students.
An open house at the $2 million center, which was developed by Rifken Group, Ltd., will be held Wednesday, Jan. 16, from 4-6 p.m., with a ribbon cutting at 5:30 p.m.
The 15,000-square-foot facility includes 10 technology-rich classrooms and two computer labs including one laptop classroom; a large student lounge for students to study and work in groups and Wi-Fi throughout the building. The classrooms are available for daytime rentals to businesses, clubs and other organizations.
"We're excited because we feel this new facility matches the high quality programming we have offered hundreds of students in the Madison area for over 30 years," said Jennifer Opperman, director of Lakeland's Madison Center.
"New classrooms allow us to offer all our students a rich academic experience. Lakeland has always been located on Madison's northeast side, but this new facility will give students better access. From work space to technology to ample free parking, we think our students are really going to be pleased with this facility."
In 1978, Lakeland developed an evening degree-completion program for working adults, the first in the state at that time. This academic year, Lakeland is celebrating the 150th anniversary of the founding of its main campus, which is located in Sheboygan County.
Today, the college serves 500 students in the Madison area through its evening, weekend and online program, and 2,800 students statewide. The college's total enrollment is approximately 3,800.
Lakeland students in Madison can earn a bachelor of arts degree in business management, communication, marketing, computer science, accounting, healthcare management, hospitality management and specialized administration (available to students with associate degrees in approved technical fields). Lakeland also offers a master of business administration and a master of arts in counseling.
