North West opens new interim location in Frontier Centre Mall, hopes for new campus funding

North West College recently expanded its Battlefords Campus with the opening of a new location at Frontier Centre Mall. The college leased a former warehouse space and transformed it to create five classrooms, a multi-purpose flex room, and dedicated study space. North West CEO President Dr Eli Ahlquist explained that the space will help to accommodate the college’s growing enrolment. “We’ve definitely seen a lot of growth this year so we needed some new … modern space,” said North West President Dr Eli Ahlquist. “[I]t’s great to have these updated rooms and [a] good learning experience for our students.” The space is expected to be an interim location, according to North West Board Chair George Prudat, as the college hopes to receive funding for a new campus through the next provincial budget.
