CONSTRUCTION: The state-of-the-art $32 million campus hub on the Daytona Beach Campus – the L. Gale Lemerand Student Center – was completed in 2019.
A groundbreaking ceremony for the 84,000 square-foot building drew over 200 on May 4, 2017, with DSC President Tom LoBasso, District Board of Trustees and chair Forough Hosseini joining students and civic leaders to celebrate as a 15-foot rendering was revealed.  
The new building has become a hub for academic support including the library and Writing Center, student clubs and workforce-transition services, and provides a modernized space for food services. It also includes a one-stop resource center for career planning and job placement for students to explore career options, research job opportunities, create resumes, practice interview skills and how to dress and act professionally. The center serves both students seeking work experiences and businesses offering internships, service learning opportunities and/or cooperative education placements.
Other building features include a student commons area, coffee shop, conference rooms, a large events center, an outdoor dining area, offices for student clubs and a gaming area.
