HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) - Nevada State College is moving into new digs for the 2008 school year, a 42,000 square-foot building in Henderson that cost $23 million to build.
The liberal arts and sciences building is the first of several buildings on a wish list for the school of about 2,000 students. The school opened in 2002 with temporary headquarters inside a remodeled vitamin warehouse.
The school has secured 500 acres of hillside space in Henderson.
School spokesman Spencer Stewart says officials want to build a
60,000 square-foot, $40 million nursing and sciences building.
Since 2002, the school has leased the vitamin warehouse from the
city of Henderson for $1 per year. It also leases class and office
space elsewhere in Henderson.
