Academic center in Oregon unites academia with campus services
The first new building on the Yamhill Valley Campus of Chemeketa Community College in McMinnville, Ore., has centralized academic and administrative services on the campus. A multifunctional building, the 58,000-sf center houses classrooms, student services, testing areas, counseling, foodservice operations, a library, general science departments, and campus administration departments. Planning and landscape improvements also create a communal exterior space. Portland-based Yost Grube Hall Architecture and Carlson Veit Architects of Salem, Ore., led the Building Team.
