Arisaig student takes the helm at campus opening
A STUDENT from Arisaig joined First Minister Nicola Sturgeon and City of Glasgow College principal Paul Little to unveil the new £66m Riverside Campus on the banks of the River Clyde.
Liam Dyer, a former pupil of Mallaig High School, conducted part of the First Minister’s tour of the new campus last week, which represents the first phase of City of Glasgow College’s new £228m twin-site super campus.
Eighteen-year- old Liam, studying for a Scottish Professional Diploma in Nautical Science, assisted the First Minister as she steered a super tanker through Sydney Harbour within the new state- of-the-art simulation suite at Riverside Campus.
Liam said: ‘The new Riverside Campus has completely revolutionised our learning. The layout of the place is all open and it makes for a great atmosphere. ‘For me, it’s like a home from home.’ City of Glasgow College’s Riverside Campus was officially opened by the First Minister, who described the state- of-the-art facility as ‘ world- class’ before meeting college staff and students during a tour of the campus.
