The Blinn Board of Trustees will consider approving a second building at the RELLIS Campus in Bryan when it meets tonight (Tuesday).
The board will consider authorizing administrators to request qualifications for an architect to design the Phase II building on the RELLIS Campus. Earlier this year, trustees and administrators discussed a proposed second phase of construction at the campus.
Blinn and the Texas A&M System set an initial goal for 500 students during Blinn’s inaugural year at the campus in 2018.
However, student demand pathways to bachelor’s degree programs offered by the Texas A&M System exceeded all anticipated demand, as Blinn enrolled 1,515 students for the Fall 2018 semester.
Blinn anticipates that it will quickly surpass the 2,500-student capacity of the Walter C. Schwartz Building.
The board will meet this afternoon at 5:30 p.m. at the Walter C. Schwartz Building on the RELLIS Campus, located at 2423 Blinn Boulevard in Bryan.
