Delta College to announce site for new Saginaw center

Posted: Updated:
SAGINAW COUNTY, MI (WNEM/AP) -

We'll soon learn more about plans to build a new Saginaw center for Delta College.

President Jean Goodnow and her administrative team unanimously chose an area in downtown Saginaw. The exact location and details of the plan will be announced a public meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 8 at 7 p.m.

The building will be 24,000 square feet with a future maximum compacity of 1,250 people. 

Beth Ernat is the executive director for the Saginaw Downtown Development Authority. Ernat applauds the decision of school administrators who recommended construction of a new satellite campus in the heart of the city.

"We have amenities. And the amenities are growing and this is an opportunity for us to be partners with Delta to serve their students as well as serve our community and our growth," says Ernat.

Delta College's current Saginaw campus is at the Ricker Center in Buena Vista Township. About 80 percent of the 650 students that attend there live in the city of Saginaw.
