While classes continue at the OTC Branson Center, progress continues at the future home of the OTC Table Rock Campus.  During their December meeting, the Ozarks Technical Community College Board of Trustees approved Springfield Builders, Inc., for site construction at the College’s new location at 10698 Historic Highway 165 in Hollister.

Following the groundbreaking for the Robert W. Plaster Free Enterprise Center in October, site construction is the next step in bringing the planned building to the OTC Table Rock Campus.  This process will include the construction of driveways and parking spaces, among other work that will prepare the site to support the building and infrastructure.

The Robert W. Plaster Free Enterprise Center, a state-of-the-art, four-story facility, will open its doors to students in the fall of 2013.  Until then, the College continues to offer classes at the OTC Branson Center in the Shoppes at Branson Meadows, at 4440 Gretna Road in Branson.

OTC purchased a total of 8.25 acres located between Highways 65 and 165, including the former Crockey’s Restaurant, in December of 2010.  In addition to the purchased land, the City of Hollister donated a contiguous .83 acres, bringing the total land now owned by the College to 9.08 acres. 

Citizens in the Hollister School District voted to join the Ozarks Technical Community College district in April of 2010.  Among other community benefits, joining the OTC district allows Hollister residents to pay the in-district tuition at the College, which is significantly lower than the cost for students living outside of the district.
