Shin Endorses Everett Site for New Snohomish Campus

Sen. Paull Shin (D-Edmonds) the chair of the Senate Higher Education Committee today endorsed the Pacific Station site in Everett as his preferred location for a new UW North Sound branch campus.

In a news release sent out earlier this afternoon, Shin cited the recently completed NBBJ site selection study report which gave the highest ranking to the Pacific Station site in Everett as the best location for the new campus.  Shin further stated that he felt the Pacific Station site offered the best potential to meet the needs of Washington students.

A public hearing on the Senate bill to create a UW North Sound campus in Everett will be held Thursday January 17 at 10:00 a.m. in Senate Hearing Room 3 in the John A. Cherberg Building.
