The completion of the Student Services Building is an important milestone for Citrus College.  The building not only creates a welcoming entry to the campus, but it also consolidates all of the college’s student services departments into one easily-identifiable location.  As a result, efficiency has been increased and the student experience is enhanced.

The dedication ceremony is a celebration of the building’s completion, as well as a gesture of appreciation for the college’s surrounding communities whose support of the Measure G facilities bond made this project possible.

Reporters and photographers who are interested in attending this event should call the Citrus College Office of External Relations at (626) 914-8873 to confirm.  Upon confirmation, a parking pass will be provided.  Tours of the building will be offered after the dedication ceremony.
