Nebraska colleges are looking to expand its horizons in north central Nebraska

Posted:
O'NEILL, NE (KTIV/US92) -

The Northeast Community College Board of Governors held their monthly meeting in O'Neill Thursday.

College officials say they moved their meeting from its usual place on the college's main campus in Norfolk to put the focus on their Holt County satellite campus.

During the meeting, the Board approved a purchase agreement for a tract of land in O'Neill that will allow them to build a new student center.

College officials say the current extended campus building is over 70-years-old and a new facility would better serve their students that live in north central Nebraska.

The college has begun a $2.5 million capital campaign for the new building, which doesn't have a completion date set yet.

That facility is a joint effort between NECC and Wayne State College that serves students of both institutions.

College officials say this facility in O'Neill will be strictly for Northeast.

However college officials say what both sites will do is help them better serve their 14,000 square mile coverage area in northeast and north central Nebraska.
