The increase in student enrollment at Fulton Montgomery Community College this year has lead to the development of new upgrades and additions throughout campus and the student housing buildings.
Campus President Dustin Swanger Ed.D, stated that FMCC has seen a 3% increase in student enrollment. This has lead to a higher demand in student housing facilities. The 294 spaces throughout the three dorm buildings have been occupied. This does not include students living in apartments nearby, or students living in the Microtel Inn and Suites in Johnstown. President Swanger said, “We are looking at what we might need to do and adding more housing is on our radar.” He also stated that “Student housing expansion is a possibility.”
There are also plans for on-campus expansions and upgrades as well. President Swanger said that in the near future, the college’s bookstore may be brought up to the first floor of the College Union building, which will also expand. The campus may also see the addition of signs or maps for better directions throughout the grounds and buildings.
The Physical Education building may possibly see some changes in the near future as well. The locker rooms and bathroom facilities will be upgraded as a part of the changes.
Students and faculty will most likely see upgrades and changes throughout campus and the student housing buildings take place in the near future. President Swanger added that the college is, “looking to the future.”
