COLLEGE STATION - The 17,000-sf Grady Ash Leadership Learning Center for the Texas A&M Corps of Cadets is complete. The four-story building is connected to Leonard Hall, a dormitory inside the Quadrangle — the historic home for the roughly 2,500 cadets.

The Ash center is the second of four planned centers designed to modernize facilities used by the Corps of Cadets.

The first facility, the Buzbee Learning Center, was completed in 2012 and houses offices for academic advisers, multipurpose computer labs, meeting and training rooms, a cadet lounge and has Wi-Fi throughout.

The Ash Center will include many of these features, but also anchor the Hollingsworth Leadership Excellence Program, where the goal is to prepare young men and women to go into corporate America.

The remaining two learning centers are expected to be completed in the next three years.

While the centers are being built to enhance academics and leadership, the buildings also serve to help recruit cadets. The program had 1,850 cadets in fall 2010 and expects around 2,550 cadets this fall.
