Henderson State University welcomed students to its new Hot Springs facilities Tuesday. Henderson leased the Landmark Building at 201 Market St. in 2014 to provide space for classrooms, seminar rooms, computer lab, and office space.
After several months of renovations, the facility opened its doors for the 2015 spring semester. Henderson had previously used classrooms at National Park Community College in conjunction with an established Henderson, NPCC partnership.
The new year starts with 145 students enrolled in 24 classes. “That’s 765 credit hours – 465 credit hours ahead of projection,” said Christi Batts, director of Henderson’s Hot Springs Academic Initiatives.
