Ari­saig stu­dent takes the helm at cam­pus open­ing

The Oban Times - - News -

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.
