Officials from Black Hawk College cut a medical gauze ribbon on Oct. 27 to officially open the new nearly $8 million Veterinary Sciences Center on the East Campus just north of the Stark-Henry county line.

The two buildings at the center, which are reachable by a new ring road just west of the main entrance to the campus, offer a teaching hospital, laboratories, classrooms, an animal ward, auditorium and more.

The center is offering a one-year veterinary assistant program this fall for 22 students and next fall will offer the veterinary technician program for 24 students in a two-year program.

These new offerings will complement the nationally acclaimed agricultural programs that have been a hallmark of the East Campus for decades.

The interim director of the program is Quad Cities-based veterinarian Michelle Trommer, who also teaches in the vet assistant program on the West Campus in Moline.
