The new facility is located at 4610 Blackhawk Commons Drive, Rock Island (11th Street/U.S. 67 at Black Hawk Road/46th Avenue) and has 14,000 square feet with three computer labs, six classrooms, and a testing room.
The center opened in January. Adult Ed instructors unpacked during the day Monday, Jan. 13, and the first classes in the building were held that night. Daytime classes began Tuesday, Jan. 14.
The Adult Learning Center moved from Watch Tower Plaza – where it had been since opening in March 1999 – to make way for a new Walmart Supercenter. The city of Rock Island constructed the building and the college owns it.
