New community college campus planned in north Louisiana
RUSTON, La. (AP) — A north Louisiana community college is building an $8 million campus to anchor a planned technology park.
The new Delta Community College campus will be in Ruston.
The News-Star reports that Louisiana Community and Technical College System President Monty Sullivan expects construction on the campus to begin next year and be completed sometime in 2020.
Ruston Mayor Ronny Walker committed that the city will spend $7 million to build a road leading to the campus and park, along with infrastructure. The city also will construct a building to house high-tech robotics and manufacturing firms.
The land for the campus was donated.
Delta Community College operates campuses in eight northeastern Louisiana towns and cities, with the main campus in Monroe. The new Ruston campus will be co-branded with Louisiana Tech University.
