A groundbreaking for a new multipurpose education building in Tarleton State’s new campus plan will take place on Feb. 27, according to a report from Fort Worth Star-Telegram. The new building will open for classes in the fall of 2019.

The new campus will be 80 acres and is located just west of Chisholm Trail Parkway in southwest Fort Worth. When opened in 2019, this first building will have the capacity for about 2,500 students.

In a letter on Tarleton’s website, University President F. Dominic Dottavio said the vision for this new campus is to “create a vibrant, life-long learning environment for the citizens of Fort Worth and surrounding communities.”
