TAMPA, Fla. (October 26, 2010) – Rasmussen College invites the Tampa Bay community to attend the groundbreaking ceremony for its newest campus, Rasmussen College Pasco, scheduled to open spring 2011. Located on the corner of SR54 and Sunlake Blvd., near Sun Lake High School in Lutz, Fla., the new campus will help meet the needs of a growing student body in the Bay area, as well as introduce expanded program offerings.

“We are grateful for continued opportunities to bring a variety of in-demand educational and professional options to the Bay area. The recent expansion of our existing Pasco County campus to New Port Richey and now the addition of the Rasmussen College Pasco campus will allow area residents to access these tools with greater convenience,” Campus President Claire Walker said. “Our groundbreaking ceremony not only marks the start of our expansion, but represents the jobs the new campus will bring to the community.”

Rasmussen College Pasco will offer Bachelor’s and Associate’s Degree Programs in the most sought-after job fields through the Rasmussen College School of Business, School of Technology and Design, School of Nursing, School of Justice Studies, School of Education, and School of Allied Health.
