Construction zone

The campsues of Central Lakes College, Brainerd and Staples, are in the midst of major renovation projects schedueld for completion for the Aug. 23 start of fall semester classes (with the exception of Chalberg Theatre, set to be ready sometime this fall). The east wing of the Brainerd campus, including areas in the math and sciences area and the gymnasium, are getting new heating and ventilation systems, with lots of ceiling work involved, as well as ductwork. A new math-oriented computer lab with 48 stations is taking shape in what formerly were rooms E313 and E314. Seats have been removed from Chalberg Theatre as part of that $500,000 project to make a high-tech classroom space as well as comfortable viewing for dramatic arts performances.
