Construction workers were busy Friday putting the finishing touches inside the new University Center | GA 400 campus.They’ll soon move out, making room for more than 400 students registered for the opening semester of the new campus, which is a joint project between Gainesville State College and North Georgia College & State University in Dahlonega. Sherman Day, executive director of the center, said staff members have begun moving into the 38,000-square-foot, $7 million facility on Pilgrim Mill Road, near the Cumming Aquatic Center and Georgia Drivers Services Office. “The fire marshal has given us an occupancy certificate that allows us to move furniture and faculty in and to move around without hard hats on,” he said.
