Colorado Christian University's Loveland Center has relocated to 3553 Clydesdale Parkway, Suite 300, Loveland, Colo., 80538. The new facility is one exit north of the University's former site along Interstate 25. Construction wrapped in late February, and classes and normal business operations began the week of March 1.
On Thursday, April 8, the Loveland Chamber of Commerce will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Center, with light refreshments at 3:30 p.m. followed by the ceremony at 4:30 p.m. The University will also host an on-site prayer dedication on Monday, April 19, 5:00-6:30 p.m., featuring CCU President Bill Armstrong as keynote speaker.
With its main campus anchored in Lakewood, Colo., CCU operates multiple centers throughout the state to serve students enrolled in its College of Adult and Graduate Studies. In addition to Loveland -- which enrolls students from throughout northern Colorado and even southern Wyoming -- there are centers in Colorado Springs, Grand Junction, Northglenn, and the Denver Tech Center.
While a growing number of CCU's adult and graduate students sign up for online-based programs convenient to their work and family schedules, others still prefer live interaction in traditional classroom settings. The Loveland Center's new facility provides larger classrooms, computer and presentation technologies, high-speed wireless access, and more office and work space for faculty and staff.
"We are honored to serve the greater Loveland and northern Colorado communities, and we look forward to doing so for many years to come in our brand new center," Armstrong stated. "CCU is delighted to move into our new center. The classrooms and offices are perfect: More elbow room, immediate access to I-25, and great parking."
"These are opportune times for the College of Adult and Graduate Studies, as non-traditional students are increasingly returning to school to begin or complete degrees," said Tammy Thompson, coordinator for the Loveland Center. "With this additional space we will be better equipped to serve the needs of our students."
