Approximately 100 guests attended Herzing University’s ribbon-cutting ceremony at the historic Hurt Building in downtown Atlanta on Sept. 27. Attendees included several of the school’s partners, students and faculty, as well as State School Superintendent Otha Thornton and keynote speaker Central Atlanta Progress President A.J. Robinson.
The new campus provides a modern education facility in a historic location among a bustling business district. The Hurt Building offers updated amenities, including a coffee shop, collaborative learning areas and simulation labs. Additionally, the new location provides easier public transportation and highway access for students coming from across the Atlanta metropolitan area.
“Our first priority is always our students, and we knew that this move will enhance their learning experience and networking opportunities,” said Herzing University-Atlanta Campus President Chris Chavez. “We’re a career-focused institution, and being downtown near so many thriving businesses provides more opportunities to partner and collaborate on workforce and education needs.”
