A community celebration was held Wednesday morning marking the opening of MCC's new downtown campus.
Students began this school year in the Kodak building on State Street.
The college renovated seven floors to include simulation labs, an economic and workforce development center and a library. Classes began two weeks ago for the 2,000 students at the new campus location.
Bob Duffy, CEO of the Rochester Chamber of Commerce, says, "This building is going to end up being such a beacon for kids in this city and outside for many, many years to come. You're on hallowed ground of George Eastman right here and what George Eastman did for this community right here -- that's what MCC will do in the future."
Duffy, himself, is an MCC graduate from the school's criminal justice program. He went on to eventually become Rochester police chief, Rochester mayor and Lieutenant Governor of New York after graduation.
