CMC celebrates opening of new campus in Dillon

DILLON – Colorado Mountain College (CMC) officials chose Thursday for their Dillon grand opening celebration in hopes of good weather. Better luck next time.

“We were hoping for good weather,” said Pam Arsenault, CMC division director. “We could’ve chosen a better day, I guess.”

Still, Arsenault hopes anyone who wasn’t able to attend Thursday’s grand opening at the new Dillon site will stop by for a visit on their own.

CMC bought the downtown Dillon building, which was previously the WestStar Bank, last May. Construction workers gutted the building and have remodeled it into a college building – only the wet sciences lab has yet to be completed.

The three-floor building now houses two computer labs, three large, multi purpose classrooms, offices and more. The wet sciences lab is scheduled to be complete July 1.

CMC opened the Dillon campus to better serve this side of the county – officials believed there were prospective students who wouldn’t travel to Breckenridge for classes.

Arsenault said she hopes the new campus will serve the Dillon community, in addition to serving more students.

“I’m just hopeful the community in Dillon will recognize what a resource we are and how we can … strengthen the community on this side of the county,” she said.
