    HAZLETON, Pa. – On January 10, 2018. Lackawanna College held a ribbon cutting ceremony at its newly renovated Hazleton Center located at 2 East Broad Street in the heart of downtown Hazleton, renewing its commitment to the Hazleton community.

    The new 14,277 square foot facility previously known as the Traders Bank Building provides space for healthcare career training, a state-of-the-art Police Academy training facility, and eight classrooms to accommodate its growing student population. As part of the renovation, the College has also installed a two-story glass-paneled concept classroom and fully equipped computer lab.

    The new location is ideal for a dedicated Lackawanna presence in Hazleton for years to come, allowing the College to continue providing quality higher education opportunities for residents of the Greater Hazleton area including portions of Luzerne, Carbon, Schuylkill, and Columbia counties.
