Bethune-Cookman University is extending its reach in Florida with the opening of its Deltona Campus on Monday. A crowd milled around new classrooms and administrative offices at 1555 Saxon Blvd., a renovated medical complex that houses the new campus.

A performance by the Wildcats Marching Band followed a ribbon cutting at the satellite campus that opens for classes Thursday with about 25 to 50 students. General education classes such as English and math will be taught from the university’s professional studies program leading to degrees such as business administration, criminal justice, elementary education and liberal studies.

“Young people and not-so-young people will have the opportunity to (expand) their formal education beyond high school,” B-CU President Edison Jackson said at the dedication. “We want to offer a range of academic activities in a way where people can stay at home and do online courses. This is just the beginning.”
