Goodbye International Village; Hello Center for Accelerated Training!

A Message from Kathleen Plinske, President, Osceola, Lake Nona, and Poinciana Campuses 

When you return to or visit the Osceola Campus in the spring semester, you will notice some changes. The International Village is slowly disappearing. The research for adding portables began in the fall of 2009, and six portables were installed to add classes for the fall of 2010. The portables allowed 105 sections to be added to the schedule. The Intensive English Program began using the portables in January 2015 and have used them since.

Last week, the classroom contents were emptied and will be re-purposed across the campus and College. Facilities has been working with contractors for the safe removal of the portables, which will occur over the winter break.

Starting in spring 2019, students in the Intensive English Program will have their classes in the new Center for Accelerated Training (CAT) Building. Portable 100 will remain as the Client Services Center for students wanting to register or get more information regarding Intensive English, Construction and Youth Build programs.
