OKMULGEE, OK -- The College of Muscogee Nation will host a ground-breaking ceremony on November 10 at 1 p.m. on its new 15 acre campus, adjacent to its tribal complex in Okmulgee.

Gaming revenue and a HUD grant will fund the first building of four to be constructed on the site.

In a news release, the Creek Nation says symbolic features are used throughout the design such as the building facing due east to represent the new beginning that the rising sun brings.

The raven which is a symbol of knowledge, a dominant feature in the CMN logo is revealed in the perimeter design. 

Extensions of the building represent wings that will unite at the circular building commons, the heart of the architecture which appears to soar out of the prairie.

A mound image and circle features are used prominently in the design as well. The building will reflect the Muscogee appreciation for natural elements of the earth.

Classrooms, lab, learning resource center, faculty and staff offices and a commons area will be housed in the new facility.
