Ribbon cutting Aug. 5 at Union Square

072716Feature_UnionSquareAt the corner of Arlington Street and Gate City Boulevard, the Union Square Campus is a symbol of partnership and revitalization in downtown Greensboro, and it’s opening its doors for the first time next month.

The campus will house UNCG’s Doctor of Nursing Practice program that trains nurse practitioners, nurse executives and certified registered nurse anesthetists, as well as components of nursing and health care education programs for NC A&T State, Guilford Tech Community College and Cone Health.

The high-tech, energy-efficient building includes a 340-seat auditorium, multiple classroom and lab spaces, informal study and common areas and a state-of-the-art simulation lab. It will serve 160 UNCG students each day this academic year, and that number is expected to grow to more than 200 next year.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held Friday, Aug. 5, and you’re invited to help celebrate the facility’s grand opening. An informational program will begin at 11 a.m. in the auditorium, and will be followed by a ribbon-cutting ceremony, reception and tours.

Admission is free, but RSVP at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/union-square-campus-ribbon-cutting-ceremony-tickets-26545899500.

The Union Square Campus is located at 109 Gate City Boulevard in Greensboro.
