DODGE CITY, Kan. (AP) — Dodge City Community College is planning to build an agriculture learning center in hope of attracting more students and filling unmet needs in southwestern Kansas.
The Dodge City Daily Globe (http://bit.ly/1aoGp3z ) reports the project is in its earliest stages, as officials consider financing and a location.
A report by college president Don Woodburn says the center would initially include classrooms, offices and a student equestrian stable. Later additions would include barns, a breeding stable, greenhouses and an outdoor arena.
Officials envision the center also hosting 4-H and FFA events as well as college judging camps and contests.
They also believe the center would make Dodge City more attractive to prospective community college students, possibly attracting as many as 200 more each year.
