The Ely Center of Great Basin College received a mini-makeover on June 1, 2018. As part of an ongoing revitalization project, Great Basin College partnered with White Pine High School students McKenzie Shady, Shamryn Brewster, and Emma Walter who volunteered their time to paint and plant flowers around the center.  The volunteers are GBC dual enrollment students, National Honor Society members, and members of the White Pine High School cheer and stunt team.

Great Basin College is a member of the Nevada System of Higher Education and governed by the Board of Regents. The college is regionally accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities.
