CORDELE, GA (WALB) -

Darton has a small satellite campus in Cordele, and it's growing. This new facility is being build between 7th and 8th streets downtown and will be able to serve more than a thousand students.  It will allow students to take general core classes and will also have space for nursing majors.

"It's convenient for our local citizens to be able to go to college here and those that are maybe working that would like to go back to college, give them the opportunity to do that," said bob evans, chairman, higher education commission.     

It's about a 9 million dollar project. The facility is set to open fall of 2014.
