BHC cuts ribbon on new First Stop Center, Hawk’s Hub

Black Hawk College celebrated the completion of the Building 1 addition and renovation project at the Quad-Cities Campus with a ribbon-cutting ceremony April 24, 2013.

The $3.9 million project included the construction of the First Stop Center, a two-story, 9,800-square-foot, half-moon shaped addition. The addition consists of:

  • First floor – Welcome Center, BHC Police Department extension office, interactive computer area, advising offices and the Transfer Center
  • Second floor – Two 400-square-foot conference rooms with an operational wall divider, the Career Services Center and counseling offices
  • Large windows that overlook the wooded ravines on campus
  • Natural light that accents the interior of the building

The project also included renovating 6,600 square feet in Building 1. The college bookstore was moved from Building 3 to the lower lobby of Building 1 and renamed the Hawk’s Hub. The upper lobby on the third floor was enlarged to replace the student space consumed by the bookstore.
