New Columbia, South Carolina, Virginia College Holds Open House


The newest Virginia College campus, located in Columbia, South Carolina, recently welcomed area business owners, government and civic officials, employers, and others to an open house event to show off the facility. Attendees enjoyed food, a string quartet, and special gifts while they toured the classrooms, offices and labs at the career college. They also got a first look at the spectacular new Cosmetology facilities at the school, which will include a student-run salon. The program will start its first class on June 30 and is currently enrolling.
