An Arizona board Thursday approved a private Midwestern college opening a location in Arizona.

Huntington University will occupy a 30,000 square-foot building in Peoria.

Huntington is a private, Christian college headquartered in northern Indiana. It isn’t the first Midwestern higher education institution to eye Peoria for a new location.

Indiana-based Trine University has a campus there and offers studies in STEM fields.

Huntington takes a similar, niche-market approach and will have digital media arts degree programs.

The university plans to start courses next fall semester.
