Student Life

Campus life

Alexander College is rapidly expanding, and the institution has added many new students over the past few years. Alexander College is also currently undergoing a campus move as the institution expands to meet the needs of the growing student body, increasing the physical space of the primary facility by more than double the current capacity. This means new labs, new library facilities and new student spaces among many other upgrades to the facilities and infrastructure.
