Downtown Builds Up for Students


Are you missing out on all the fun, new developments being created at the St. Petersburg College Downtown Campus? Exciting additions are currently being produced at the Downtown campus to maximize your college experience, including an American Stage Theatre Company, Learning Support Commons, and a school bookstore.

Take advantage of the new SPC Learning Support Commons, located in room DC 314. These commons provide free tutoring for writing, mathematics, natural science, political science and computer technology. Experienced tutors help students succeed in their school assignments. All the information about the tutors, including the individual times they are available is online at No appointments are necessary. Student Julia Haddad said “ Just come here and you will learn!”

SPC is doing its part to bring culture to the community as well as the college by adding the Arts Cultural Center box office at the Downtown Campus. It services the American Stage Theatre Company located at 163 Third Street North in St. Petersburg, just 1 block south of Bay Walk and across the street from Williams Park in the heart of downtown St. Petersburg. The Company’s vision is to “preserve the greatest human stories from our past, while creating the most defining stories and storytelling of our time. Purchase tickets at the Arts Cultural Center box office for award winning plays and orchestra events. Contact 727.823.PLAY for ticket prices and times.

The Downtown Campus has also announced that they are opening a permanent bookstore.  According to Yvonne Ulmer, campus executive officer, “it is in the works! The location has been selected to house the new bookstore already, and we’re hoping for the new addition in late 2012.” The new bookstore is just one of the many things that SPC has created to benefit students in their success.
