CRANFORD, NJ – A new student services center, named for 1948 Union County College alumnus Helen E. Chaney, graces the ground floor of UCC’s new Student Development Building at the college’s Cranford campus.  The two-story, 30,000-square-foot facility is an extensive renovation of the historic Nomahegan Building and is the new campus hub.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on Aug. 15 and attended by members of the Union County Improvement Authority, members of the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders, Senator Raymond J. Lesniak, Union County College Trustees and Governors and UCC President Margaret M. McMenamin.

Chaney pledged a $500,000 gift for student scholarships in gratitude to the college for providing a positive start to her education at a time when education opportunities for women were limited.  The gift is one of the largest the college has received.

“The College gave me my start, so I see this gift as my way of helping students financially so that they can afford not only to attend college but also succeed in getting a college degree,” Chaney said.

The Chaney Center includes admissions, registration, payment services, financial aid, disability services, Educational Opportunity Fund services, advising, career services, transfer services and testing.

The second floor of the $14 million Student Development Building houses classrooms, faculty and departmental offices. The building project was also funded by the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders.

Union County College’s Cranford campus is located at 1033 Springfield Avenue. For directions, go to www.ucc.edu.
