    Summer brought a new structure to our existing foundation.  The improvements will allow students to better groom and work with animals on a daily basis.  Improvements to heating, ventilation and insulation will create an improved environment for both students and animals.  CaFe Pet Spa is now open and taking appointments on a daily basis.  We will be holding our first Pet Care Day on October 26th.  Appointments are preferred, but walk-ins are welcome as well.

  • Engineering - CADD Students Visit Local Companies



    Engineering - CADD students toured local companies to observe a variety of ways the design process is used in industry today.  Students observed employees preforming various tasks in the shop, including robotic cells.  As future engineers, students were able to see the manufacturing process used in order to design parts for new equipment.

    Accounting Students Working to Offer Banking Center at Allegan Tech Center

    One goal for this year's Accounting students is to put a "banking center" in the Tech Center.  We are currently discussing the logistics with a local financial institution.  Eventually, Accounting students will open the banking center one or two days a month helping other Tech Center students open saving accounts and make deposits.  The Accounting students will also create flyers on various personal finance topics, such as compound interest and credit cards, the day the banking center is open.
