“I want to congratulate Park University on their east side expansion, which will allow for additional programming both at the graduate and undergraduate levels,” said El Paso Mayor Oscar Leeser. “Park has provided an education option for nearly 7,000 alumni and current students since opening their teaching facility on Fort Bliss in 1975.”
