SAGINAW, Mich. (AP) — Delta College has selected downtown Saginaw for the site of a new area campus.
The Saginaw News reports (http://bit.ly/1h2TihN ) the school’s Board of Trustees voted 8-1 Tuesday to choose downtown as the zone for its Saginaw satellite campus. In the coming months, the board will pick a specific site for a new or renovated facility.
School President Jean Goodnow says officials will examine sites within a 2-mile radius of downtown.
Delta College’s current Saginaw campus is at Ricker Center in Buena Vista Township. About 80 percent of the 650 students that attend there live in Saginaw. Projections indicate that by 2020 the college could enroll 1,100 students in downtown Saginaw.
Delta College’s main campus is in Bay County and it has other locations in Bay City and Midland.
