Double groundbreaking at Casper College Monday afternoon.

Multiple dignitaries were on hand, including the Governor, to mark the formal occasion. Earth moving has already begun for the new U-W-C-C Student Union building. Construction of a new music building begins soon.

Jennifer Cowell-Depaolo, co-department head says they look forward to getting out of an old building poorly suited to the task of music instruction.

"Currently our hall- if anything is going on in Durham Hall- we can not used our two big class rooms underneath the hall. So we're going to have a building that's absolutely sound proof."

The music building will complete an arts district for the campus.

Both the Student Union and Music Building are paid for, in part, by a $35 million dollar bond issue approved by voters in 2008.
