With a plan to grow over the next few years in order to accommodate an enrollment of 2,020 students, Central Baptist College has been thinking ahead to have adequate space for these goals.
"Probably the number one question I get is, ‘Well, you’re landlocked,’" said CBC President Terry Kimbrow. "Well, we’re really not."
A small portion of the Vision 2020 fundraising campaign was used to purchase several houses south of campus. The college has also purchased homes west of the campus as they have become available, Kimbrow said.
The college owns much of the land between the current campus and the Conway Station Baseball Complex, and they are watching other surrounding property to see what becomes available.
"People have the idea that we’re landlocked, but we’re not at all," Kimbrow said. "If we have the money we could start building all the way."
