When one thinks of Sandpoint chances are, a college town is not one of the first things that comes to mind but soon that will be the case. That's because North Idaho College has announced their plans to move their existing center located in the Bonner Mall at the small town of Ponderay into a new location in Sandpoint. The growing Ponderay NIC campus will move into that space at 102 S. Euclid St. in Downtown Sandpoint . The move will take place this summer with classes beginning at the new location for the fall 2012 semester.Once moved the new name of the campus will be NIC at Sandpoint.
The most exciting of North Idaho College's move is the increased space which will be welcome for the growing student population.The new site will be about 8,000 sq feet and is to include a theater and commercial kitchen space.The new larger site will also allow NIC to explore adding more classes and programs to the campus in the near future . NIC's Sandpoint and Ponderay locations are a branch of the main campus in Coeur d' Alene.
