The Collin College McKinney Campus officially opened the new Andrea-Mennen Welcome Center with a ribbon cutting and dedication ceremony on Aug. 18.

The two-story, nearly 40,000 -square-foot building is located at 2200 W. University Drive in McKinney. It acts as a one-stop shop for student enrollment services and houses multiple other offices, such as the career center, financial aid, testing labs, a veterans center, counseling and accommodations for equal support services.

The center was named after The Andrea-Mennen Family Foundation in recognition of a $1 million gift for endowed scholarships. This is the newest building addition to the McKinney Campus, and construction began in 2021.

“We’re thankful to The Andrea-Mennen Family Foundation for their generous gift that will benefit our students through scholarships for years to come,” Collin College District President Neil Matkin said in a statement. “The Andrea-Mennen Welcome Center is a beautiful new building that will be the warm, welcoming front door to our growing McKinney Campus.”

Concurrently, construction also took place at the campus’ existing food service area in the main building, which is across the lawn from the welcome center. A new food service area was installed and includes a Starbucks. Campus Provost Mark Smith said the cafe has been “slammed” since it opened.

“Our food services do a phenomenal job,” he said.
