EGC Celebrates Opening of $20 Million Science Building: A Step Towards Providing More Opportunities for Students and the Community

The Elk Grove Center recently held a ribbon cutting event to officially open its new science building, known as Building B. This $20 million facility is home to classrooms and laboratories for biology, chemistry, and other science courses. Fire Chief Felipe Rodriguez, who used to be a Cosumnes River College student, expressed excitement about having the college located in front of Cosumnes Fire Station 77. He believes the new building will provide opportunities for students to prosper, learn, and advance their future careers.

Associate Vice President of Student Services Tadael Emiru highlighted the importance of the new facility in providing access to college courses for the Elk Grove community, since the EGC is the only higher education campus in the area. Science classes are usually the first to fill up during enrollment and the new facility will help increase the capacity to serve these students.

Director of Administrative Services Chris Raines mentioned that the EGC is planning to complete its third and final phase of expansion in the next 10-15 years, adding another facility. Classes have been ongoing at the new science building since the spring 2024 semester, with plans to offer more courses in the upcoming fall term.

Rodriguez emphasized the importance of education, stating that it is something that cannot be taken away. Overall,
