ASU international campus set to be bigger than before

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Arkansas State University's expansion into another country is set to be bigger than first thought.

The construction on the new campus in Queretaro, Mexico is underway.

A groundbreaking ceremony took place in February and ASU leaders hope to have classes starting in 2016.

The $75 million campus is being built on 250 acres that was privately donated to ASU Queretaro.

ASU expects to generate $8 million annually once the enrollment of the campus reaches 5,000 students.
