The University of Massachusetts is preparing to open its first satellite campus. The UMass Center at Springfield will welcome its first students two weeks from today.
The newest UMass campus is on the second floor of a Main Street office tower, where ten large classrooms have been constructed at a cost more than $5 million. UMass Amherst Chancellor Kumble Subbaswamy predicts students will be excited about the course offerings.
" It will be a slow start, but I am sure it will ramp up very quickly once we get operational there."
