HILLSDALE, Mich. — Hillsdale College plans to open a new campus a few blocks from the U.S. Capitol in Washington.
The Michigan liberal arts college says it has purchased a building on Massachusetts Avenue near Union Station for about $8 million.
The Hillsdale Daily News reports the building will house the A.P. Kirby Center for the Constitution. The center is scheduled to open on Constitution Day, or Sept. 27, in 2010.
About 20 students from the college’s political science and journalism programs will attend the center each semester.
