HENDERSON, Tenn.- The fall semester officially began at Freed-Hardeman University, Wednesday. With the start of the new school year, a new building was officially opened.

Wednesday, the Anderson Science Center was unveiled. The 22,000 square foot building is located at the corner of Main Street and Hamlett Avenue in Henderson and huses both large and small classroom labs for classes ranging from biology to anatomy and physiology.

"Instead of having that big disconnedt between lecture and lab, our new teaching method is going to be much more hands on in the classrooms and this building facilitates that," said Dr. Leann Davis, dean of the School of Sciences and Math.

The former science building, the Associates Science Center, built in 1971, underwent a $100,000 renovation this summer and houses the nursing program as well as mathematics and computer science classes.
