Pasco-Hernando State College will celebrate the opening of the new Porter Campus at Wiregrass Ranch in Wesley Chapel on Wednesday, April 2, from 4 to 7:30 p.m. A dedication ceremony—including a tribute to the Porter Family—begins at 5:30 p.m. in the building B conference center. PHSC will also recognize the Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel for the establishment of an endowed scholarship for area residents.
Guests can tour the full-service library, Teaching-Learning Center, and student development areas as well as classrooms, science and nursing labs and enjoy a variety of open house activities, including entertainment provided by local elementary and high school performing groups.
“We invite the community to join us as we celebrate this exciting milestone for our college, and look forward to showcasing our new state-of-the-art campus facilities and all that we have to offer— from credit and noncredit courses to new programs,” said Stan Giannet, Ph.D., Porter Campus at Wiregrass Ranch Provost.
Located at 2727 Mansfield Blvd., in Wesley Chapel, the multi-level campus is set on 60 acres of property just off State Road 56 and adjacent to Wiregrass Ranch High School. The Porter Campus at Wiregrass Ranch builds upon the Porter family vision to increase access to higher education and workforce training opportunities in the rapidly growing region of southeast Pasco County. The new campus opened its doors on January 13, 2014 to over 1,800 students enrolled in classes at what is now the fifth full-service PHSC campus.
The Porter Campus offers courses in disciplines such as business administration, nursing, allied health, human services, information technology and those that lead to an Associate in Arts (AA) degree.
