The groundbreaking for the
Allentown Business School’s new campus building in Center Valley, PA. The three-story, 95,000-square-foot facility will have four Mac labs and five PC labs.

It will include more than 40 classrooms, five networked computer laboratories, two art studios, a medical lab, a photo and video studio, a learning resource center equipped with personal computers and Internet access for student use, a student lounge, a bookstore and offices for faculty, financial aid and administration.
