Dimitry Building

The mission of the Dimitry Academic Center is to provide Business and Accounting, Professional Studies, and Liberal Arts students who are studying in Lawrence with a sense of belonging at NECC. The Center offers greater access to faculty, Career Services and professional advisors.  It is also a welcoming place for all students to meet with classmates, use a computer, print an assignment, attend an event, or learn about transfer opportunities. Students who are undecided about their major and those taking ESL (English as a Second Language) classes in Lawrence are invited to use the center to connect with fellow students as well as faculty and staff as they explore their academic and career options.

Early registration for Fall 2024 has begun!
