On Thursday, October 23, 2012, from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., Montreat College will hold the grand opening and ribbon cutting for their Uptown Charlotte campus on the 11th floor of the Johnston Building at 212 S. Tryon Street. Among the speakers will be Montreat College President, Dr. Dan Struble, Vice President for Marketing and Enrollment, Mr. Jonathan Shores, and a special guest from the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce.

Before the Uptown location, Montreat College’s Charlotte location was outside of the city’s center. Dr. Ed Smith, director of extended education and outreach, believes that “The new campus is more convenient for our students who work in the uptown area… [and] will allow us to team up with more companies and organizations that are located in the uptown area.” His hope is for the new location to cater to the needs of students as well as provide the school with more corporate partnership opportunities.
