South Suburban College gets state funds to expand
South Suburban College outside Chicago will receive more than $40 million in state money to build an addition that will help improve its health curriculum.
Gov. Pat Quinn announced the money Thursday at the campus in South Holland. It comes from a state fund for capital construction. The governor says the project will create about 750 jobs.
The school has about 17,000 students. The governor's office says about 25 percent of those students want to study nursing and other health professions, like medical diagnostics and pharmaceuticals. Officials say the school has more than 1,000 students on waiting lists for its various programs.
The new addition at the school will expand classroom space for those training in the medical field.
