MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - The students in Northern Michigan University’s College of Technology and Occupational Sciences and the Department of Engineering Technology have a new place on campus to learn.

Upper Michigan Today stopped by the new building for Wednesday’s show, but first,
Tia Trudgeon and Elizabeth Peterson share stories of the day.
Now, back to the new Jacobetti Complex.
The Dean of the College of Technology and Occupational Sciences Steve VandenAvond says the new building will house the same services/schools, but will provide a different atmosphere and more space for gatherings and events.
The renovation was a $28.5m state-funded project with new and improved classrooms and laboratories for direct, hands-on experience.
The construction project was led by former students of NMU’s Construction Management program.

The Jacobetti Complex dedication ceremony is happening on Friday at 2:00 p.m. with an open house on Saturday from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m.
