Newport News: Grand Opening in Virginia

April 23, 2012


Saint Leo University hosted a grand opening at the new teaching and advising location in Newport News, VA, to make residents of peninsular Virginia aware of the degree programs available to both the civilian and military populations.

“The event was a huge success,” said Duane O. Stephens, assistant director of the Newport News Office. In addition to University President Arthur F. Kirk, Jr., and Vice President of Continuing Education Dr. Edward Dadez, the opening was attended by Newport News Mayor McKinley L. Price, DDS, and Virginia Delegate David Yancey, as well as other local leaders. Father Charles Saglio provided the blessing.

The new location, in the Compass Pointe office development, affords Saint Leo University’s adult students and prospective adult students “another opportunity to reach their education goals by providing them the best in quality education,” said Stephens. The Newport News Office is easy to reach from Interstate 64, and brings more of Saint Leo University’s regional resources together in a modern, technology-rich environment. Saint Leo has been educating adult students in Virginia since 1974.

Programs are available in Newport News for undergraduate degrees, including the associate degree and bachelor’s degrees in business, criminal justice, human resource management, sociology, computer information systems, and health care management. Master’s degree programs are available in criminal justice and in business administration (MBA). Classes have been underway since March. The local phone number is (757) 249-0390 and the physical address is One Compass Way, Newport News 23606.
