The DSLCC Rockbridge Regional Center (RRC) features a computer lab with 24 stations; compressed video labs; a testing center with computers used for proctored testing; two traditional lecture classrooms; a conference room and two offices; and a health sciences lab.
There is a state-of-the-art teaching kitchen for the Culinary Arts program. A greenhouse, located behind the building, will be the setting for a variety of credit and non credit floral design and horticulture classes and will also be used for the growing of herbs to be used in the recipes prepared by the culinary arts students.
This is the fourth and largest location for the RRC, since DSLCC opened a site in Rockbridge County almost 13 years ago. The RRC first opened in March, 1996, in a 1,200-square-foot facility in College Square Shopping center in Lexington; two years later, the Center was moved to a larger building, with about 2,400 square feet, just behind Peebles Department Store in the same shopping center. As the RRC outgrew that site, the RRC was moved for the third time to Magnolia Square, with a 6,500 square feet capacity. That center had a reception area, two offices, two regular classrooms, two compressed video labs, a conference room, testing center and computer lab.
The current RRC opened in August, 2008.
