Cuesta College will dedicate the Dale and Mary Schwartz Learning Resource Center, the second permanent building on the North County Campus, on May 24 at noon.

The 33,385-square-foot structure includes a new library, group study rooms, a 32-station computer lab, seven classrooms and faculty offices. The new building also houses Disabled Student Programs and Services and a Student Success Center that includes a tutoring center, math lab, writing lab and English as a Second Language lab.

The Dale and Mary Schwartz Learning Resource Center was named after the longtime Paso Robles residents and benefactors of the college. In addition to their support of the college and its expansion into the North County, the Schwartz family also funds two scholarships that support dozens of students each year.

The first plans for the building were made 15 years ago, and ground was broken on the site in late May of 2010. The construction of the building was funded by state education facilities bond money, and Mary Schwartz funded the landscaping surrounding the building.

Students were welcomed through the doors on January 17, 2012 to kick-off the spring semester.

The public is invited to attend the dedication ceremony of the new building located just off of Dallons Drive on the northeast corner of campus in Paso Robles. The ceremony will include a presentation and building tour.
