Formerly known as the Administration/Classroom Building, the Borra Learning Center has been extensively renovated.  Features include seven new high-tech classrooms and a new 3,000-square-foot Student Commons, which boasts floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the college’s Harris Gardens.  

North Central President David Roland Finley said the project is a historic renovation and addition to one of the busiest buildings on the college’s Petoskey campus. 

“Since the building opened in 1967, thousands of students have passed through its doors on their way to an associate degree and the next step of their career or college journey,” Finley said.  “Now the Borra Learning Center is beautifully equipped to better prepare future generations of students for success in a technology-driven world.”
