Linn-Benton Community College's Sweet Home branch will be turned over to Sweet Home High School after the college announced last week it was closing the doors of the facility.

Linn-Benton Community College announced Thursday, Feb. 16, that it was closing its Sweet Home Center, citing a "dramatic" decline in use and changing student needs, such as hybrid and remote classes.

According to a news release issued by the college, the COVID-19 pandemic was also a factor in the closure of the center, which stands adjacent to Sweet Home High School.

Local LBCC services will be transferred to sites throughout the school and city. However, advising staff will support the high school's dual-enrollment population with weekly office hours at the school on Wednesdays.
