College rolls out high-tech facility

GRAYSLAKE -- Students have flocked for years to the College of Lake County in Grayslake to tinker with refrigerators, learn how to repair cars and hone their accounting skills.
But now, thanks to a new $36.4 million state-of-the-art technology building, they're doing it with some of the latest technology available, including high-tech equipment that can scan car computers.
"We're teaching them the systems they're going to need when they go out and work," said Lourdene Huhra, dean of the business division. "Our equipment is as good as the equipment they'll use on the job."
The building opened in mid-January and is designed to provide a central location for programs offered by the college's business and engineering, math and physical science divisions.
