To celebrate the $85 million transformation of Seminole State College of Florida’s Sanford/Lake Mary Campus, the College is sponsoring a weekend of events focused on music, theater, the planetarium, art and a 5K race.
“You’ve probably heard about all that’s going on at Seminole State, with our new name and major new construction,” said Dr. E. Ann McGee, president of the college.

The idea is to promote an environment conducive to walking, talking and learning.
