Monday March 27, 2017

Starting March 27, new location can offer more classes and services

Front of the new Aurora Woodland Regional Learning CenterNWTC has opened a new Regional Learning Center in Aurora to replace the Niagara location, which has closed. All classes and offices have reopened in the former Hillcrest School location, forming the NWTC North Regional Learning Center-Aurora. Students started attending at the new location today. The new building will offer more NWTC classes and services, more places to study and more amenities on campus.
Sally Miller, Regional Manager for the center, said, “It’s very exciting. I think it’s a real plus for those communities to have one site, one hub to serve that community. And the Aurora area is welcoming us with open arms. We’re adding services back to the community. It’s going to be very positive there.”

They can also take classes that transfer into degree programs at NWTC and other colleges and universities, saving time and money on a degree.
Current students will find features like additional computer labs, and spaces where they can meet with visiting academic, financial aid and career advisors. NWTC will continue Youth Options for area high school juniors and seniors and may expand the programming. The facility will also offer EMT training and the business incubator and kitchen, which have been in operation since 2010.
The move was prompted by the sale of the Niagara location, which NWTC had been leasing. NWTC had been holding classes in Aurora already. By bringing all services under one roof, the College expects to increase efficiency for staff and services for students.
