Collin College marks anniversary by opening conference center


Collin College has officially marked its 30th anniversary by cutting the ribbon on a brand new, 23,500-square-foot conference center at its Central Park campus in McKinney.

The project marks the third addition to the original campus. A library and a new health science center are currently also under construction. The conference center adds much needed space for academic conferences and workshops. In addition to the large conference room, additional classroom space is also available.

The conference center can seat up to 1,035 people in a theater-style arrangement or 640 people seated at round tables. It can also be divided into three break out rooms. College officials said when the building is not in use by the college it will be available for community use.
