[Nicolet College and Technical Institute.]
Schutte-Mochon, Inc., Chicago, IL.
Wisconsin's pilot educational program to place equal emphasis on liberal arts college studies and vocational-technical training will begin with construction of Nicolet College and Technical Institute in Rhinelander, Wisconsin, in September of 1970. This school is planned to encourage the intermingling of liberal arts students with vocational-technical students since many of their courses coincide. Increased exposure to a wider range of subjects will benefit all students. The six-structure complex of Nicolet is planned to include a science center, campus center, learning resource center, art-tech center, business education center, and recreational center. Many instruction areas will be separated only by movable storage units rather than fixed walls, providing greater flexibility in the utilization of space. This open concept offers side-by-side comparison of studies between liberal arts and vo-tech students. The six "chalet" style buildings located on the 280-acre wooded site will be constructed of fieldstone, rough-sawn cedar and weathered wood with wide areas of glass. (TC)
