After completion, the project will include classroom buildings, student dormitory apartments, student group housing units & recreation building , faculty houses, a college Inn, a college library, museums, an art center, a student conference center, indoor/outdoor recreational facilities including play grounds and a Stadium.

To this end, the center will employ excellent faculties from the United States, and enroll students from both China, the U.S. and other countries.

Initially and throughout the project, many contractors and real estate workers will be employed. In fact, since Thompson Education Center Job Opportunity Event held on Oct. 22, 2014, the project has already offered some job contracts to local contractors and other professional firms and more and more job contracts will be offered throughout the entire project. Once the project is complete, there will be many job openings at the Thompson Education Center.
