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.
