New Campus in Town
Finally A New Campus has opened along the Moline River front at 34th Street and River drive. It is named WESTERN ILLINOIS UNIVERSITY RIVER CAMPUS. The first building is a remake of the old John Deere Technical Center. Western added an engineering degree and has formally used the old downtown Desaulner's building for classes and labs. It's my understanding that the class rooms will move into the new building on 34th Street and River Drive.. There are no plans to add dormitories but for out of town students to use available rentals close to the campus. More builds will follow. In an earlier press release Midland Steel has volunteered to relocat to add to the athetics of the school. T bad we didn't have this when we were graduating from High School.
