$11.5 million approved for new Sanford/Lake Mary student services facility

When the current Sanford/Lake Mary Campus student services building (building A), opened in the mid-1970s, the College had about 14,000 students.

Florida's 2015-16 budget, signed by Gov. Rick Scott on Tuesday, June 23, includes $11.5 million for a new student services building on Seminole State College's 50-year-old Sanford/Lake Mary Campus.

This will fund phase one of the $24 million project.

"We are grateful for the very strong support we received from Gov. Scott, the legislative leadership and every member of the Seminole County legislative delegation," says Dr. E. Ann McGee, Seminole State's president. "They know that this building will be our 'front door' in generating more degrees and certificates, and meeting the workforce needs of our community. Our students and team appreciate this great support."

The new building will replace a student services building that was built as a data processing center in the mid-1970s, when the College had about 14,000 students. The current building is far too small to serve Seminole State today, McGee says. More than 30,000 students attend the College.

Seminole State could break ground on the student services building in spring 2016, and it could be completed in late 2017.

The facility, which will be built near the Wayne M. Densch Partnership Center and the planned Wellness Center, will serve as a one-stop for students, offering registration, enrollment and veterans services, academic advising, student life, support for DirectConnect to UCF students and career development all under one roof.

Currently, student services are located in six buildings on the Sanford/Lake Mary Campus.

The project was first funded with $250,000 for planning in the 2009-10 budget.
