FRANKFORT, Ind. (WLFI) - We're getting an exclusive behind the scenes look at the new Ivy Tech campus in Frankfort.
Construction crews continue working on the facility and classes are slated to begin Aug. 19.
More than 150 students are registered right now with a number of classes already filled up.
Mayor Chris McBarnes believes the new campus will provide a strong educational foundation for a number of people in the city.
"We couldn't be more excited about our numbers, we expect those numbers to grow between 180 and 200 before we open Aug. 19. This tells us this is a worthy investment in our community, that our children and young-at-heart are taking advantage of this opportunity and will truly give them tools to be successful throughout their lives," said McBarnes.
Parking lots, a conference center and additional space will open in November.
