Rowan College at Burlington County President Paul Drayton was joined by Burlington County Freeholder Director Bruce Garganio, RCBC Foundation Chair Tony Mahon, RCBC Foundation Trustee Dan Caldwell, and several students, faculty and employees to make their mark on the final beam of the college’s Student Success Center on Nov. 21.

Officials describe the 78,000-square-foot building, set to open in the fall of 2017, as “the centerpiece” of the transformed Mt. Laurel campus.

“This is an exciting moment in the history of the college,” Drayton said. “The Student Success Center will be a state-of-the-art building made for our students. It will be a one-stop shop for all student services and will serve as a place for students to relax, collaborate and congregate on campus. It is the centerpiece to our transformed campus experience, which will rival those at four-year universities.”

The four-foot beam is collecting signatures before being placed in the northwest section of the Student Success Center.
