CCC maintains architectural integrity of WWII-era buildings as it grows

´╗┐Improvements in Central Community College's diesel
technology program include a 10-ton lift installed in the
Harlan Building.

´╗┐Administrators with Central Community College believe that the age of the buildings at the Hastings campus are more of a plus than a minus.

" I think our direction as a college is to take a look at the architectural integrity of the facilities we have here and try to maintain that," said campus president Bill Hitesman.

The campus has been operating under a strategic facilities plan for a number of years, with many buildings undergoing renovations and updates.

The buildings on this campus were built in the early 1940s as part of the Naval Ammunition Depot that operated from World War II through the Korean War.
In the decades that CCC has been located on the site, classrooms, work spaces, administrative offices and other areas have occupied the old buildings.
