Paris Junior College-Sulphur Springs Center students will begin spring semester classes Tuesday in classrooms on the new campus located at 1137 East Loop 301 in Sulphur Springs.
The former Foxworth-Galbraith Lumber Company facility has been transformed into a modern and spacious college campus building and will replace the campus location on Houston Street next to the Sulphur Springs High School where the college has been located since the late 1990s.
“We are excited to get the new campus in Sulphur Springs open and ready for our students,” said PJC President Dr. Pamela Anglin. “”We are proud to provide students in the Sulphur Springs area with a new and modern college learning facility where we can expand educational opportunities.”
The new campus facilities will provide additional space for academic classes, workforce development programs and continuing education classes.
The campus building has 11 classrooms, testing facilities, a library and a bookstore. In addition, a new and modern welding facility has been constructed on the campus and will be entering its second semester of operation this spring.
Also available at the new campus is a brand new parking lot that will provide ample space for student and faculty parking.
Dr. Anglin said that she is anxious for the public to see the new campus and plans to hold an open house in the near future.
