The growth can be seen and heard all around campus. Right now, six properties that LCSC own are being torn down and transformed into green spaces, which will be used for outdoor classrooms, a community garden and other outside activities. Another project that's well underway is the $1.6 million renovation of the school's 100-year old fine arts building, which will soon be the new home to the college of business.
"I think there's a lot of excitement," said LCSC Director of Physical Plant Matthew Graves. "I've been here four and a half years and every year we've grown just a little but each time."
LCSC officials said that they hope to begin planting trees on the green space by the end of this month, and the fine arts building renovation is scheduled to be completed in March, so they can move staff in during spring break.
