The Alexandria Technical and Community College Foundation and the Alexandria Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house on Wednesday, August 7 at 3:00 pm, to celebrate the opening of J.A. Wedum Foundation Hall (1509 Jefferson Street, Alexandria).

The public is invited to attend and celebrate this milestone in the growth of the college and the community. Attendees will be able to see the college’s new four-story, 60,000-square-foot student housing building which will open fall 2024.

The new student housing building will provide safe, conveniently-located housing to 150 additional students, and is expected to ease the burden on the local rental market by freeing up low-cost apartments that may otherwise be rented by students. 

The Alexandria Technical & Community College Foundation currently has 149 beds available for students at Foundation Hall, on 17th Ave near campus. The housing unit has had 100% occupancy since it opened in 2011, and nearly 100 students were on waiting lists for the 2023-24 academic year. The 2024-25 housing application opened on January 1, and both Foundation Hall and J.A. Wedum Foundation Hall are expected to be at 100% occupancy.

Please join us to celebrate this huge milestone for the college and the community!

Wednesday, August 7
3:00-4:30 PM
1509 Jefferson Street, Alexandria MN, 56308
