Lambuth Attracting ‘Strong Interest’ as Prelude to Classes Resuming

JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) — The University of Memphis is readying its new Lambuth campus in Jackson for classes that begin Aug. 27.
If website traffic is an indication, there is strong interest in the satellite campus. U of M officials said there were more than 8,000 unique visitors to the campus online site, which was launched Friday afternoon.
The campus will include seven buildings on the campus of the former private Lambuth University, according to The Jackson Sun.
U of M wants to begin with 250 students and increase enrollment on the Jackson campus to 1,000 students over five years.
The campus will offer courses in education, business and nursing this fall.
University officials hope to draw students from the West Tennessee region to the Jackson campus.
