Bainbridge College, a two-year public institution, is among the fasting-growing colleges in Georgia with a 52% increase in enrollment since 2003. To meet the demands of the increasing student population on the main campus in Bainbridge, a new Student Center was constructed, designed by Hastings+Chivetta.
The new facility is sited adjacent to the existing Student Center. The design team also completed an addition to the academic facility’s student center at the satellite campus in Blakely.
The Bainbridge campus facility fits into the campus context and blends with the College’s style and environment by incorporating similar building materials. The design also facilitates future additions and modifications.
Components include a 3,400-seat gymnasium/convocation center, cardio fitness and weights center, multipurpose rooms, locker rooms, media center with a computer lab and reading room, game room, student lounge, food court, offices and support spaces.
