The Dickinson Building on Germanna Community College's Fredericksburg Campus which suffered serious damage during the earthquake in August 2011, reopened Monday after extensive repairs and renovations.
The quake damaged all three stairwells and created a floor-to-ceiling crack in the wall on the ground floor of the Dickinson Building, which is Germanna's largest. It was the most seriously damaged building in the Fredericksburg area. The building was closed after the quake.
Monday is the beginning of Germanna's spring semester, and over 12,000 students are returning to classes at campuses.
