A majority of College of the Redwoods students started their classes where several were held in the two new buildings.
Christian Turner started his first day at CR and had his first class in one of the new buildings.
"This is one of my first days here so it's all new but the classrooms are all really nice," said Turner.
CR President and Superintendent, Kathy Smith, was out with students today helping them find their classes. Smith said Monday was an especially exciting day on campus.
"We have so many students and returning and so many new students as well. When I look out my window and see the parking lot almost full I know it's a good day."
