Delta College chooses downtown Saginaw as site for new satellite campus

FRANKENLUST TOWNSHIP (WJRT) -

(04/15/14) - Delta College made a huge decision Tuesday night.

They're choosing the city of Saginaw as the location for their new satellite campus.

Right now, the Ricker Center in Buena Vista Township serves as the Delta College satellite campus, but it's aging and the college says it's time for an update.

They were looking at four locations for a new campus.

They'd either be once again in Buena Vista Township or at three locations in Saginaw: Michigan Avenue, Old Town and Downtown.

After months of researching and consulting  the board voted 8-1, downtown.

That's one more positive step forward for the city; CMU already agreed to build downtown.

Projections show the college could enroll 1,100 students with this new downtown site by the year 2020.

Delta College President Jean Goodnow says this location makes the most sense.

Now that they have general location nailed down, they'll start looking into specific areas and really get the ball rolling on this new campus.
