midland-universityOfficials at Midland University in Fremont say they plan to acquire the former Dana College campus in Blair in July.

Midland President Ben Sasse announced Thursday the private university planned to “have the keys in hand” by July 19, and then would launch a fundraising campaign.

Midland officials hope to raise $11 million in the next 18 months as they work to expand to the campus in Blair, about 20 miles from Fremont.

University officials say the move is needed because of steadily increasing enrollment.

Plans call for Midland students to be on the Blair campus beginning in 2015 or 2016.
