At the front door of MVC

Moreno Valley College's Welcome Center serves as the gateway to the College. Located next to Student Activities and behind the Science and Technology Building, the project was funded from monies from the Measure C bond measure that taxpayers approved in March 2004.

The Welcome Center joins Student Academic Services building, the Dental Education and the Network Operations centers as buildings completed under the Measure C bond measure that was approved by voters in order to finance new construction and remodels across the District in order to accommodate the growing student population.
