About Garden City Community College
The first four community colleges in Kansas were established in 1919, and GCCC is one of two from that group which still exist. It was created by county-wide election on April 1, 1919, and opened in September of the same year.
The present 14-building, 63-acre campus at 801 Campus Drive was designed between July, 1965 and January, 1966.
The Collins Technical Building was added in 1974, and a residential life addition was built in 1978. The Penka Building was added in 1986, when additions were completed to the Joyce, Collins and PE Buildings. Williams Stadium, a baseball facility, was also added. In January of 1996 a 15,000 sq. ft. $1.4 million technical teaching laboratory was completed so that GCCC could provide more training for workers in area and national industries. A three-building student apartment complex opened in 2002, and a 12,900 square-foot, two-level addition to the original student center was completed in 2003, with the entire structure renamed the Beth Tedrow Student Center.
The 19,260 square-foot, three-level, two-story Student and Community Services Center opened in August, 2006 and was dedicated in October of the same year. Attached to the original... Administration Building, the $3.12 million facility consolidated public and student services, provided an on-campus home for adult basic education, added a series of 21st Century classrooms and created a single point of assistance for most services GCCC provides.
GCCC owns more than 70 acres east of Campus Drive, which has been developed in a cooperative effort with the City of Garden City. Named Tangeman Fields in honor of Dr. James Tangeman, a former president, the property includes softball and baseball facilities. Also located there are the college's indoor baseball practice building, a football practice area, running track with public seating and soccer fields.
