Meridian’s South Campus in Guthrie to Begin Offering Classes March 21
We are excited for Meridian’s South Campus in Guthrie to open on March 21. We recently moved into the building and are getting in new furniture and equipment daily. To learn more about the South Campus we’ve set up a page where you can view all of the details at meridiantech.edu/southcampus.
As part of the Guthrie Chamber Coffee on April 6, we’ll be hosting a ribbon cutting at 9:30 a.m. Immediately following, our team will be available until 4 p.m. to provide tours, visit about upcoming courses and share with you all of the exciting things taking place on the campus. We’d love to see you there.
Meridian has been active in serving residents of the Guthrie community since joining the district many years ago. Now we’re excited to have a physical presence in the community. We hope you’ll find something that fits your needs among our variety of offerings.
Personal and Professional Development Short Courses
The South Campus will offer a wide variety of short courses for personal and professional development. Some of our offerings will include health care skills training, computers and technology, cooking classes, business and entrepreneurial services, adult basic education including free GED and HiSet test preparation, supervisory development, film crew skills for set construction as well as lighting and electrical, and much more. Daytime and evening classes are available to help accommodate busy schedules. A full listing of course offerings at the South Campus will soon be available at meridiantech.edu/southcampus.
Customized Training for Businesses
The mission of our Workforce and Economic Development team is to help make your business stronger. When you partner with us for training, your company’s performance improvement is the priority. Training can take place at your business or at the South Campus. We have a team of professionals to help develop customized training for your team in the areas of safety and OSHA compliance; manufacturing and industrial skills; leadership, management and team performance; and computer and technology skills.
Startups Start at The Peak
The Peak provides dedicated space and services for early stage startups to help them accelerate through the most challenging phase of building a business. Their services include business consultation and coaching; workshops, programs and networking opportunities; and in a few months our co-working space will open with fiber internet, endless coffee and private meeting space available on a daily rate. In addition, The Peak serves as a business incubator with 10 furnished offices that include numerous built-in amenities and three industrial manufacturing bays, each with an office and storage room. We are eager for you to bring your laptop and work on site or tour our space to see if it is the right fit to locate your business.
Conferences and Events
Located just two miles off of I-35, our spacious facility is perfect for any type of training event or business conference, whether regional or statewide. Flexible meeting space and exhibit halls, combined with outside catering partners make Meridian’s South Campus an excellent choice.
