Nashville State is expanding

Into Clarkesville.  From The Leaf Chronicle.

Expecting big things

Nashville State Community College, the first community college in Clarksville, opened its doors Thursday and will begin classes on Aug. 27. Dozens of local officials, students, faculty and supporters were present to show their support for the new educational asset in the growing community of Clarksville-Montgomery County. 
The new school is expected to have rapid growth in its student population and a big effect on Clarksville‘s economic development. 
“Our programs should place a lot of students in the job market,” said NSCC President George Van Allen. “What we hope to do is put more people to work and more students into the university setting. That’s our two primary purposes.” 
In August 2011, Van Allen, along with Tim Hall, president of Austin Peay State University, and local state officials Senator Joe Pitts and State Rep. Tim Barnes, announced a satellite campus of Nashville State Community College would occupy the former Clarksville Saturn dealership at 1760 Wilma Rudolph Blvd.
