BILOXI, Miss. (AP) - The Tulane University School of Continuing Studies plans a dedication ceremony and official ribbon cutting for its new, expanded Mississippi Coast campus on Oct. 26.

The ceremony is scheduled 10 years to the day that the school reopened following Hurricane Katrina. University President Michael Fitts and Biloxi Mayor Andrew Gilich will address attendees.

The new campus is a 14,961-square-foot building that allows faculty and staff to serve 500 evening and weekend students and an additional 500 daytime students. It’s equipped with computer labs and its academic area is double the size of the old campus.

The new building allows the campus to offer more community workshops, training seminars and testing. The university also plans to increase its capacity to offer interactive video conferencing for both academic and community usage soon.
