GRAYSLAKE, Ill. — The College of Lake County spent $1.6 million to refurbish a new auto body shop, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The project was part of the college’s master plan, noted the article. The Automotive Collision Repair program can now offer a full schedule of classes during the day as opposed to only offering evening classes like it has in the past.

“We'll be able to offer classes in the morning and mid-afternoon, doubling our courses,” said Octavio Cavazos, instructor/department chair, in the article. “We will also have open lab times so our students can spend extra time improving their skills, something most of them can't do at home.”
