Rowan College at Burlington County is hosting a series of free events from Aug. 29 to Oct. 21 to highlight its new campuses, amenities and offerings.

According to college officials, RCBC has created the ultimate full-service campus experience in Mt. Laurel that includes a new Student Success Center and Health Sciences Center, and a completely redesigned campus quad.

The complete transformation, which includes improvements in every building, took less than two years to complete.

“The new Rowan College at Burlington County Mount Laurel Campus rivals those at any four-year university across the nation,” RCBC president Paul Drayton said. “The Campus offers a modernized, student-centered experience that will better serve the entire college community and we are excited to share our progress with the entire community we serve.”

In addition to the Mt. Laurel Campus transformation, RCBC made improvements to its Mt. Holly Campus, Willingboro Campus and Joint Base Campus.

According to the college, The Mt. Holly Campus is becoming a cultural hub for the historic downtown area. The college is moving the student art gallery to the front of the building and several of its fine art programs to the facility to be with the college’s culinary program.

College officials say the Willingboro and Joint Base campuses now feature a new Classroom to Career model that better serves adult learners and makes it easier for them to earn degrees in growing careers.
