TU officials say the the university will be purchasing an old school complex in Thomasville, known as the Magnolia School, this Friday (1/14).
The decision comes following months of meetings with community members who, in the past, have protested the purchase of the site by people who have no ties to the community.
TU says the site, which served as Thomasville's all-black high school during segregation, will eventually be home to student dorms and a sports complex.
