Ridgewater to celebrate beginning of remodeling project

WILLMAR — Ridgewater College will celebrate a “Building Breaking” for its $14 million remodeling project at 11 a.m. Friday in front of the Student Services Building on the college’s Willmar campus.

The construction and remodeling project has been in the works for several years. A first phase was completed several years ago, but the second phase was dropped from two successive bonding bills before winning final approval in 2012.

The project includes expanding and improving facilities for agriculture and veterinary technician programs.

Administrative and student services facilities will be remodeled to give the college a more organized layout and a new main entrance.
