Lone Star College gets a shout out from the Wall Street Journal

LSCS's recent purchase of the old Compaq campus is big news. Apparently it is the second largest office/commercial deal in the US this year so far. (Who Knew?)

I guess timing IS everything.....

Addendum:
Back in Sept. 2006, Fred Blanton suggested this very deal to the (then) NHCCMD board and John Pickelman dang near laughed in his face. Granted by waiting the college got $100 million knocked off the price, but they had no way of knowing that would be the case at the time. This was the impetus for Fred running for a board position twice. It is good that common sense finally broke out in the halls of LSCS, but it certainly took a while for it to take root.

It took a changing of the administration and the foresight of Dr. Carpenter to make it happen!

Anyone know if these new campuses are going to issue 4 year degrees, or are they going to be feeder campuses to the universities?

Don I don't know this for certain, but the impression I am getting is that certain four year degree programs will be offered there. The question is, which ones?
