A ribbon cutting was recently held at the Northeastern State University–Broken Arrow campus to mark the official opening of another state-of-the-art classroom bulding.
The event marked the completion of the first of many educational construction projects throughout Tulsa County funded by Vision 2025, and the first of three new buildings to be added to the NSU-BA campus through the County’s plan for economic developments and capital improvements.
The success of the NSU-BA campus is due, in large part, to the dedicated support of Broken Arrow, the residents of Tulsa County and the outstanding students who have chosen to pursue their educational needs at NSU BA.
The tremendous progress made at the campus could not have been possible without the foresight, courage and determination of community leaders throughout Tulsa County who envisioned a better metropolitan area and came together to develop the Vision 2025 plan.
The expansion of the facilities is another significant step in NSU-BA’s efforts to better meet the needs of current students while also increasing the number of students they are able to serve.
Future plans will allocate Vision 2025 funds to construction of science, library and classroom facilities which will be able to accommodate an anticipated 4,000 student increase over the next two years.
The new facilities will provide the area with more highly-trained workers which NSU-BA administrators hope will attract more companies to the area. According to the Vision 2025 website, an estimated 50,000 students will attend NSU-BA over the next decade.
