University description (as per official university website)
Midland College (MC) was established as an independent junior college in 1972 and held its first classes on campus in 1975. Since that time, the campus, one of the most beautiful in the nation, has expanded to a 704,752 square foot main campus on 224 acres in the heart of Midland, Texas - a county seat of over 100,000 people. The institution, overall, has grown to include eight other campus extensions, including an 85,000 square-foot Advanced Technology Center. We recently opened the F. Marie Hall Academic Building, a two-story, 79,072 square-foot facility providing 36 classrooms, a 102-seat lecture hall, offices, and a student snack bar and open-air patio. And, nearing completion are a 21,645 square-foot addition to the Fox Science Building and a new 10,838 square-foot Helen L. Greathouse Children’s Center. These improvements are just part of a five-year plan to implement $41.8 million in expansions and renovations, approved overwhelmingly by Midland voters in a 2005 bond election.
