Cape Fear Community College had reason to celebrate Tuesday morning. A new building opened for high school and college students on Cape Fear's North Campus. After a ribbon-cutting ceremony, students and teachers got to tour the new 30,000 square foot facility. The first floor is designed for Wilmington early college high school students to earn a high school diploma and two-year associate degree in five years. CFCC cosmetology students will use the second floor to hone their skills. CFCC President Eric MxKeithan said, "The addition of this building certainly gives us the ability to have enrolled 3 or 400 additional students this year. Without this building we certainly would not have been able to do that. In addition to having new and exciting facilities for Wilmington early college and our own very robust cosmetology program, it has loosened up a little bit of space, and we're able to serve everybody else at the same time." To build the new facility and purchase the equipment cost $6.7 million.
