ARKADELPHIA , Ark. (HSU) – Henderson State University today announced it has leased the Landmark Building in downtown Hot Springs where it will offer upper level courses towards degrees in business and education. The building at 201 Market St. will house several traditional classrooms, seminar rooms, a computer lab, and office space for the director and faculty.
“We have been working towards this for many years, but were unable to make it happen until we got the state appropriation in support of this initiative,” said Dr. Maralyn Sommer, interim provost and vice president for academic affairs at Henderson.
The development extends the partnership with National Park Community College, and brings Henderson’s presence to downtown Hot Springs.
“The ability to lease a building and hire a director has turned our efforts from just a ‘hope and dream’ to a reality,” Sommer said. “This is a very exciting time for both Henderson and the Hot Springs community.
