FARMINGTON, NM. Following a Scion-led student housing feasibility assessment in 2015, The Scion Group has been selected again by San Juan College to guide the College through the development process for its first on-campus student housing.
Scion will assist the College in selecting a student housing partner, including development of a request for qualifications (RFQ) and request for proposals (RFP), evaluation of proposals, interviewing short-listed firms, serving as a resource to the selection committee, and providing information and feedback to the College in the negotiation of final transaction terms.
Founded in 1956 as the Farmington Branch of the New Mexico College of Agriculture and Mechanical Arts (now New Mexico State University), all classes were taught by part-time instructors during evening hours at Farmington High School. The first facility for a branch campus was constructed in 1967-1968. San Juan College separated from NMSU to become a separate community college in 1982. It currently enrolls over 11,000 students in the schools of Business; Energy; Health Sciences; Humanities; Science, Math and Engineering; and Trades and Technology.
