Elgin Grand Opening
ACC Elgin Campus celebrated the grand opening of Phase 2 on February 6. View photos from the event here. The expansion includes specialized facilities for the college’s Veterinary Technology and Sustainable Agriculture Entrepreneurship programs. The expansion features an 18,500-square-foot academic building with a surgical clinic, small animal wards for the vet tech program, a state-of-the-art processing kitchen and market for the sustainable agriculture program, and teaching spaces. It also includes an 11,000-square-foot outbuilding with space for washing and handling crops and storing farming equipment. The outbuilding also holds covered pens for larger animals and a cattle chute. The facilities will provide students with hands-on experience as they will be able to grow and place crops into a farmer’s market, and those in the vet tech program will work with dogs and cats from the animal shelter and livestock, including sheep.
