Central Lakes College in Brainerd and Staples will start the 2010-11 academic year on Monday, Aug. 23 with a fourth straight year of enrollment growth. As the first day approaches, nearly 3,400 students are registered, including nearly 2,200 full-time (at least 12 credits). Almost 2,400 enrolled for the fall term are returning students. That is about 7 percent ahead of the same point last year. Physical changes to the campuses include the creation of a Brainerd campus 48-person computer lab as part of a mathematics curriculum change, remodeling to create a larger capacity and technology-equipped classroom, new air handlers, high-traffic carpeting, and gymnasium improvements. The Staples campus has a state-of-the-art Videography Production lab equipped with cutting-edge tools. Chalberg Theatre on the Brainerd campus is to re-open in October with new seating, technology, and other updates. Among those working on technology upgrades for classrooms and other facilities is Scott Streed (pictured), director of technology services at CLC.
