Lynn Campus Enrollment Center
Friday, October 19, 2018
8:30 – 10 am
In February of 2018, NSCC contracted with Follett Higher Education Group Inc. to run its previously independent campus bookstores. The partnership offers our students many advantages, including expanded lower cost textbook options including rental, used and digital materials that support the College’s access and affordability goals. The newly renovated and expanded Lynn bookstore was built to serve our students as well as the Lynn community. With this grand opening, it will now be the only retail bookstore in Lynn. The College is proud to provide this community resource that will feature, in addition to textbooks and NSCC branded items, a “Best Sellers” section, a children’s corner and a small programming space.
The new sustainable greenhouse and related classroom equipment at our Lynn campus supports the college’s Horticulture, Culinary Arts, Health and Science programs and provides additional capacity to meet current workforce needs. The greenhouse will be equipped with aquaponics, rain catchment, composting and solar energy systems. The greenhouse will also provide community benefits by facilitating a partnership between the college and the Boston-based Food Project.
Speakers will include:
Dr. Patricia A. Gentile, President, North Shore Community College; Carol Gladstone, Commissioner, Division of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance; Brendan Crighton, Massachusetts State Senator, 3rd Essex District; Thomas M. McGee, Mayor, City of Lynn; Mark Morin II, Project Manager, APC Development Group, Inc.; David Klein, Group Vice President, Follett; Brunonia Barry, Author*; Eric Frauwirth, Dean of Career & Technical Education and Business; John Wang, Regional Director, The Food Project – North Shore; Dr. J.D. LaRock, Chair, NSCC Board of Trustees
