As part of an effort to revitalize downtown, the Urban Land Institute has recommended creating a strong arts district. Although city officials are yet to approve the proposal, officials with Mississippi State's Meridian campus say the school is taking steps to offer more such programs.
"We're certainly looking at arts programs as part of the growth and development and of the Meridian campus and we're working on that now," says Dean, MSU Meridian.
Within the next six months, Nicholson says he should know if the school will be able to offer any new arts programs.
