Nipissing Buys Nearby Monastery

October 14, 2006

In early September, Nipissing University purchased the Precious Blood Monastery and 23 acres of land near its North Bay campus to help address a "critical shortage of physical space for classrooms, offices, meeting rooms, seminar rooms and storage." The land is located between Nipissing's main campus and two of its largest residences. (News release at http://www.nipissingu.ca/news/view.asp?ID=20060808 )
