Ground Broken For New SLCC Campus

ST. MARTINVILLE, LA (AP) — South Louisiana Community College's new $9.2 million campus in St. Martinville could be open by next fall.

         The Advocate’s Richard Burgess reports a crowd of state legislators, local leaders and education officials braved the chilly weather Wednesday to officially break ground at an old sugar cane field off Louisiana Highway 31 in St. Martinville, the site of SLCC's planned 36,000-square-foot Evangeline Campus.

         SLCC Chancellor Natalie Harder said the new campus should be open by the fall of 2015 or the spring of 2016.
