This includes classrooms, club office spaces, conference rooms, game rooms, event spaces, cafeteria, coffee shop, study spaces and an outdoor eating area. The Workforce Transition Center in the new building will be able to assist students seeking help through counselors, to talk about careers, job openings, internships, creating resumes, practice interviews and learning how to act and dress in the workplace. Student Life Skills classes, an Associate’s degree requirement, will also be held in the new facility. Career Services, the current place to find help regarding jobs at DSC, has already helped 7,500 students in 2016 and has grown its outreach 80% in the last 2 years. The current library serves about 200 people a day and in a year, 300,000 online resources are utilized, 12,000 books are checked out and 4,000 questions are asked to librarians. The Writing Center has 5,600 appointments made, 5,300 visits, and 4,300 visits to the special learning space, the Attic, all in one year. The project, designed by Ikon.5 architects from Princeton, N.J. and managed by Perry-McCall Construction Inc. in Jacksonville, is expected to debut in spring 2019.
