Nordson STEM center is now open

Last Friday, inside the MiraCosta Library on the Oceanside campus, staff, students and donors gathered as college president, Dr. Sunita Cooke, and Nordson vice president Joe Stockton officially unveiled the Nordson STEM Learning Center. The $450,000 learning center is designed to help bridge the gap between the classroom experience and students’ responsibilities at home. In its first month of use, 2,667 students have visited the learning center, receiving counseling and tutoring in chemistry, physics, math, biology, biotechnology, physical science and computer science courses. This is one step in the colleges goal to provide additional resources for students’ success outside the classroom with plans for additional studying and tutoring hubs to be placed.
