The remodeling of Napa Valley College’s previous administration building into a Student Services Center has been completed.
Designed to bring many student services together under one roof to better serve students, the remodel of building 1300 was the final major Bond N project at Napa Valley College. The centerpiece is a new Welcome Center for students and the community.
The office of Oscar De Haro, vice president of Student Services; Admissions and Records, Counseling offices, the Transfer Center and Career Centers, Student Life and ASNVC (student government), and Student Support Services are now in building 1300 (Student Services I).
Remodeling has also been done in what is being called Student Services II, the existing Financial Aid area off the Quad and across from the college Bookstore. Trio Programs (Upward Bound and Talent Search) have now been re-located to that area, again consolidating services.
From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 19 a Student Services Day will be held with tables representing Student Services on the Library plaza. The goal, according to De Haro, is to increase awareness of available Student Services and have faculty and students meet Student Services staff.
An open house and celebration of the 1300 building will be held all afternoon April 19 with a ribbon cutting by the College Board of Trustees planned for 4:30 p.m. Students and the community are invited to visit the new Welcome Center and take a self-guided tour of the 1300 building.
