SWU relocates Columbia Learning Center
The university’s Columbia Learning Center is moving to the northeast area of Columbia, in response to student feedback.
“At the end of July, we will be moving to a beautiful, brand-new building adjacent to I-77 just off Farrow Road in the northeastern part of metro-Columbia,” said Southern Wesleyan University Provost Keith Iddings. “This location brings us closer to a larger number of our students. It also should be more convenient for most commuters.”
The new location is in Pinnacle Point Business Park. Southern Wesleyan University will occupy more than 16,000 square feet of space in the building.
“Offices will be on the first floor and classroom space will occupy the third floor,” Iddings said.
For the past 18 years, the university has been located in the Granby Building on Charleston Highway in Cayce.
“Although our current space in the Granby Building has served well for many years, an aging facility and shifts in student demographics have convinced us to set out for new territory,” Iddings said. “A great many of our students and faculty have mentioned this need and we have listened.”
Southern Wesleyan University’s main campus is in Central, and classes are offered in Columbia, Greenville, Greenwood, Spartanburg, North Augusta and Charleston. The university was founded more than 100 years ago by leaders who promised to “help men and women become what God has designed them to be.”
Southern Wesleyan University prepares students for leadership and graduate study in such fields as business, education, religion, music, medicine, law, religion and a variety of civic and social service professions. Southern Wesleyan offers graduate degrees in the areas of business, management, education and ministry.
