|NAVIGATING THE WTC CAMPUS DURING CONSTRUCTION|
WTC, Parkhill, Smith and Cooper, and Teinert take every precaution to insure the safety of students, faculty, staff and visitors to the campus at all times. Visitors and everyone on campus should allow themselves extra time to arrive safely at campus locations.
For your own safety, please follow the way finding signs on campus and do not walk through construction zones. Construction zones will change quickly forcing alternate routes to different buildings and areas on campus. Walking through a construction zone may result in a fine for students. Please be aware of your surroundings as you walk near areas of improvement.
The Western Texas College Board of Directors approved a $15 million dollar renovation to the WTC campus in August of 2013. The renovation will address ongoing issues with the age of specific, well utilized facilities and equipment necessary to the maintenance and operation of the campus.
Campus improvements include:
- Multiple Utility Replacements and Plaza Repairs
- Building Renovations of the gym (HPE), the Student Center, the Fine Arts building and the Grounds
WHY DOES THE WTC CAMPUS NEED RENOVATIONS?
Most of WTC facilities’ infrastructure is over 40 years old. Built in 1971 with strong support and by sheer force of will from the community, the WTC campus was constructed to withstand time, West Texas elements, and the community’s educational needs. WTC has provided quality education to multiple generations of the people from Scurry County, the surrounding communities, and all over the world. The infrastructure improvements will allow WTC to continue this tradition of quality education well into the future.
Even though maximum care has been taken to maintain equipment and buildings, aged air handlers, electrical systems, and buildings need additional upgrades and attention to allow WTC to continue the commitment to community education that was started in 1971.
