College Center

Northeast Community College/Wayne State College

South Sioux City, NE

2011 Completion

$7.6 Million

The College Center is a joint effort of Northeast Community College and Wayne State College, focused on meeting the post-secondary and vocational education needs of northeast Nebraska students.  BCDM assisted with site selection, campus master planning and implementation of the initial building on this 57-acre site donated by the Community Development Agency of South Sioux City.  

The planning process was enhanced as representatives of each college and BCDM toured three facilities in Houston to learn what elements might give this new college center a competitive advantage over other post-secondary institutions.  

The overall site design gives considerable emphasis to the placement of the first building to create prominence, establish future traffic flow and to allow orderly growth.  This first building houses classrooms (general purpose, science, nursing), business & industry seminar space, student services, library and a bookstore.
