College of St. Scholastica celebrates completion of Health Science Center

The College of St. Scholastica celebrated its new Health Science Center with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Thursday in the BlueStone development at 940 Woodland Ave., Duluth.

The three-story, 45,000-square-foot building is St. Scholastica’s first-ever academic building in Duluth located off the main campus. The Health Science Center's location is about a mile from the main St. Scholastica campus, and is across Woodland Avenue from the University of Minnesota-Duluth.

The new facility allows for expanded class sizes in St. Scholastica’s graduate Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy programs. Occupational and physical therapy students will start taking classes this fall in the new building. Students in the Physician Assistant program are scheduled to start taking classes in fall 2017, pending accreditation.
