Several hundred students were enrolled in Pulaski Technical College's newest site near the Saline and Pulaski county border as the fall 2008 semester got under way Monday.
The Little Rock-South site is located at 13000 Interstate-30. Renovation of the site, formerly the Little Rock Expo Center, began last year and has been substantially completed, according to the school.
"After all the hard work that has gone into getting the site open, it's great to finally see students here," said Mike Sneed, dean of technical and industrial programs and site coordinator of Little Rock-South.
The 159,000-SF center includes a library, bookstore, café, computer labs and student services.
Motorcycle/ATV is one of the career-oriented programs housed within the new campus' Transportation Technology Center. Other programs include diesel technology, small engine repair and transportation facility management. Automotive technology and collision repair technology will remain at the main campus in North Little Rock this semester, but will be relocated for the spring 2009 semester.
The Pulaski Technical College Arkansas Culinary School relocated to the more spacious Little Rock-South this semester from its previous home on Asher Avenue.
