by | Mar 25, 2021 | Latest

Collin College has flung open its Farmersville campus doors, but according to the executive dean of the campus, the high­light will occur later this sum­mer and autumn after they cut the ribbon and open its class­rooms to all students.

Diana Hopes, executive dean of the Collin College-Farmer­sville campus, said the college plans a formal opening on May 22. It will include a ribbon-cut­ting, an open house and a com­munity gathering to celebrate the college’s entry into what Hopes described as the “eastern edge of Collin County.”

The school had a “soft open­ing” Monday, March 22, offer­ing a smattering of online cours­es and in-person classes, Hopes said, adding “we’re ahead of schedule. The dean said the col­lege is offering online courses in biology, kinesiology and open government.

“We’re not yet at a full sched­ule” of classes, Hopes said.

When the campus opens ful­ly, it will have a 1,200-student capacity.
