Sparkie is enjoying a 105-acre public college campus where many new buildings have been constructed over the past several years to improve the quality of education for the students who go there.

The campus features beautiful landscaping, murals and the Marian Theatre where world-class plays and musicals are performed. About 11,500 students enroll each semester at one of the college’s four locations in the county.

The college has the motto “Start here. Go anywhere.”
