Embry-Riddle to open new campus

CRESTVIEW, Fla. -- Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University is opening a new Crestview campus to meet a growing need for students in the north end of Okaloosa County, home of Eglin Air Force Base and Hurlburt Field. "ERAU is the front runner in knowing the needs of the workplace when it comes to aviation related jobs, and we have seen the growth around the Crestview Airport and in aviation related contracts that make up this area of Florida," said Ron Garriga, director of academic support of Embry-Riddle Fort Walton Beach campus. The new campus is on the second floor of a building at the corner of South Ferdon Boulevard and Southview Drive. (Source: Crestview News Bulletin, 01/26/12)
