State leaders lauded the opening of the new Lanier Technical College campus in North Hall during a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday, Oct. 19. “Institutions like Lanier Technical College are an essential part of Georgia’s robust workforce and thriving business climate,” Gov. Nathan Deal said. “With unparalleled resources for learning and mastering high-demand skills, this location is truly a 21st-century campus for a 21st-century workforce.” The $150-million, 335,000-square-foot campus will accommodate more than 5,000 students, doubling Lanier Tech’s current capacity. The campus will be open for classes in January 2019. Rep. Emory Dunahoo, R-Gainesville, said the new campus will provide students interested in trade and vocational training an alternative to a typical liberal arts education at a university or college.
