Lake Superior College’s new Downtown Center, located at 120 N. 2nd Avenue West, officially opened on Wednesday, Aug. 20.

An unorthodox ribbon-cutting ceremony featured LSC President Patrick Johns, wearing safety glasses, gloves and wielding a disc grinder, cut through a metal ribbon decorated with signs created by LSC machining students.

Duluth Mayor Don Ness, Duluth Area Chamber of Commerce President David Ross, and Greater Downtown Council President Kristi Stokes were among the dignitaries who spoke at the ceremony.

The recently remodeled, 33,700-square-foot, leased facility houses integrated manufacturing training programs, including machine tool, welding and computer-aided design. Fall semester welding, machining and CAD technology classes will start on Monday, August 25 with more than one hundred students expected to attend.

“Fall enrollment for our integrated manufacturing programs is up substantially,” said Jenni Swenson, LSC dean of business and industry. “We’ve expanded our teaching space for these programs, increasing welding capacity from 16 to 36 booths. Our investment in new facilities and new equipment will train students for well-paying jobs.”

In addition to instructional labs and classrooms, the college has established a Fabrication Lab on site, focusing on rapid prototyping and reverse engineering, including 3-D printing, which is open to community partners, including area manufacturers and high schools.
