Muscogee Nation buys land for college campus
The Muscogee (Creek) Nation of Oklahoma has purchased land for its first tribal college campus.

The tribe will buy 145 acres from the Oklahoma State University Institute of Technology. Construction on the campus is expected to begin in six months, college president James King said.

"We want students to have a place to call their own," King told The Tulsa World. "A place to participate in activities and cultural events."

The tribe opened the college in 2004. Enrollment has grown from 29 students to 145.
