Media Advisory - Centennial College officially opens Ashtonbee Campus renewal project

TORONTO, March 31, 2014 /CNW/ - Centennial College is officially marking the opening of its Ashtonbee Campus Renewal Project on Tuesday, April 1 at 2:30 pm.

The sprawling campus received a thorough makeover with the addition of a glass-enclosed "gateway" building on Ashtonbee Road, as well as an expanded gymnasium. The additions are welcome updates to Centennial's oldest campus, which dates back to 1972.

The new trestle-inspired building centralizes registration and other student services on the ground level, and accommodates a contemporary library on the second floor. The original campus gym gained a naturally lit second level to make room for weights training, exercise studios and related amenities.

Ashtonbee Campus is home to Centennial's School of Transportation, the largest transportation technology training centre in Canada, as well as selected programs in community services, general arts and sciences, and English-language training.

Centennial College graduate and Toronto automobile dealer Ken Shaw Jr. will provide opening remarks, along with Centennial President Ann Buller.
