Lone Star College breaks ground on satellite campus in Magnolia, Texas

July 8, 2024
The Magnolia Center will be a satellite campus for Lone Star College-Montgomery.
The Lone Star (Texas) College System has broken ground on the long-awaited Magnolia Center in Magnolia, a satellite campus for Lone Star College-Montgomery.
Community Impact reports that planning for the $34 million project has been ongoing since 2014, when voters approved a $485 million bond issue for the community college district.
The center is slated to welcome students for the spring 2026 semester.
The 51,900-square-foot facility will have seven classrooms, seven labs, five computer classrooms, a library, testing center and a meeting space that can be reserved by community members.

The center will offer academic transfer courses; heating, ventilation, and air conditioning programs; and emergency medical services professions programs.

Construction of the Magnolia Center project was delayed by several obstacles, including Hurricane Harvey and the Covid-19 pandemic.
