Arkansas Baptist College: Stimulated

Posted By on Thu, Mar 18, 2010 at 11:15 AM


NEW UNION: Coming soon to Ark. Baptist.

This will put some people to work, revitalize a neighborhood and provide a shinier lure to college students.

Arkansas Baptist College announced this morning that it would spend $18 million on campus and neighborhood work. First Security Bank will provide the financing through a federal tax credit program.

Highlights of the work:

* A new general education building

* Expansion of the cafeteria from 77 seats to 322 seats

* A new 190-bed residence hall

* Purchase of additional properties surrounding the campus to prepare for future growth

* Through separate funding, a community union (pictured above) that will include a coffee shop and lounge-study area, food court, office space, conference room and loft apartment living for students.

Here's the full news release.
