Pasco-Hernando State College officially dedicated the new Porter Campus at Wiregrass Ranch

By Laura Kinsler of the Tribune Staff.  As officials from Pasco-Hernando State College officially dedicated the new Porter Campus at Wiregrass Ranch, math professor Sarah Fede invited the hundreds of guests at the ceremony to stick around for a while and marvel at the “exquisitely beautiful” campus. “I hope you guys actually got a chance to see the views,” she said. “It is absolutely beautiful — the sunsets we get from our offices, from the classrooms. We had to actually take time in one of my classes to just have sunset appreciation.” The seven-story college built on its own parking deck is an urban campus in a pastoral setting. Everyone in the room knew the onetime cattle ranch was in the midst of a transformation, and the cattle grazing on pastures across State Road 56 eventually would be replaced by thousands of office workers, homeowners and athletes.
