The Lake Superior College is expanding to downtown Duluth soon, and on Wednesday the college president was touting the advantages the new campus will bring.

LSC will move into the Advanstar building on the 100 block of 2nd Ave. West.

President Patrick Johns says the new space will allow the the school to increase the number of students in manufacturing by almost 100 percent. 

"So we're trying to grow those programs," Johns explained at a Great Downtown Council breakfast. "They're not able to grow on campus. We're limited to our facility and our space there. We should be able to almost double our number of students in these programs and there are waiting lists right now for them."

The college will be offering machine tooling, welding, and other manufacturing courses there. 

Construction on the site could begin as soon as the spring semester of 2014.

    It seems an hour doesn't go by without several television campaign ads criticizing a candidate for having millions of dollars or trying to line his or her pockets at government expense.
