A festive open house event on August 14, plus an appearance at the New Kent County Fair, marked the grand opening of Rappahannock Community College’s latest off-campus site. New Kent residents were invited to tour the site and discuss the many programs and classes that will be offered there. In preparation for the Fall 2015 semester, more and more new furniture, equipment, and computers continue to arrive.
