Darton College breaks new ground

Posted: Updated:

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - There's more evidence of growth at Darton College. Construction crews are at work again.

The school broke ground Friday afternoon on a 6,000 square foot bookstore where students will be able to buy text books, school supplies, gifts, clothing and more. It's right next to the new student center.

"They've needed a bookstore set aside for students to get in and out of for a long time," said LRA Construction President, Ben Barrow. "They'll also have a wider variety of material to choose from."

Follett Higher Education Group contributed $1 million toward the construction. It will manage the bookstore. The building should be complete by March.
