The campus footbridge, which closed for the fall, reopened at the start of the spring semester.

The bridge that connects the east and west sides of campus, which closed for renovations last summer, reopened in January, according to a college official.

While the bridge was closed, AACC ran shuttle buses between East and West Campus for students.

Dean of Student Development Deneen Dangerfield said the college ended its contract with the shuttle bus company when the bridge reopened.

Shirly Castro, an elementary education student, said getting to class last semester was hard.

“I remember I was in one of my English classes, and then I had to go right away to the other side of the campus, and I just had, like, 15 minutes,” Castro said.

Ali Hassan, a first-year transfer studies student, said the bridge’s reopening will help students get across campus “much easier and will help with students being on time to their classes.”
