Higher Education at Heart of the Community

By Bruce Farrin – Staff Editor

View from windowRUMFORD — The University College Center at Rumford/Mexico has begun the fall semester at its new location on the third floor of the River Valley Technology Center at 60 Lowell St.

Director Lisa Cooper said, “We’ve had very positive feedback from the students walking through the door. I think it gives them a sense of pride to be in a new space and to know that their institution has invested in them.”

“We like the idea of being an anchor point in the downtown Rumford area, inspiring startup businesses and other nonprofit partners to join us,” Cooper said. “Moving to the technology center makes us very visible in the heart of the Rumford area. It allows Rumford to tell the community, ‘Hey, we have higher education at the heart of the community.’”
