CALDWELL — Treasure Valley Community College will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony Friday to celebrate the opening of the new Caldwell Center.

The ceremony will kick off the Indian Creek Festival, and tours of the new facility will be allowed in the afternoon after the ribbon cutting.

TVCC President Dana Young and Caldwell Mayor Garret Nancolas will speak at the event and will lead the ribbon cutting. Speakers at the ceremony will explain the idea behind the new campus and why it was needed.

The new facility has various amenities such as science labs, a full-service book store, tutoring labs and other student services.

“It really has a lot of services that we didn’t have at the old building because we have more space,” Kathleen Robinson, director of the TVCC Caldwell Center, said.

Students will begin classes in the new building Monday. Registration will continue through the first week of classes.

A time capsule will also be buried before the ceremony to mark the beginning of the new center. It will include the idea behind the new building, enrollment figures and a list of staff.
