ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Cranes hoisted the first beam of what will be Darton College's new student center into place Tuesday morning. 

College President Dr. Peter Sireno rolled up his sleeves and helped guide the first piece of steel into place. He even fastened the beam to its supports.

The new student center is one of several buildings under construction on campus. With new dorms and a new nursing building under construction the college is going through what it calls a growing phase.

"The housing, we're finally going to become a residential college and I think the entire campus is going to be transitioned, it's going to be unique, pretty exciting there's a lot of things that are going to happen," Sireno said.

Darton College is also in the planning phase for a new academic building. 

Sireno said funding for that project is expected to be approved in next year's Board of Regents budget.
