Freed-Hardeman to offer college classes in Dickson
DICKSON, Tenn. (AP) - Freed-Hardeman University says it has agreed to assume ownership of the Renaissance Center in Dickson, with plans to offer a four-year undergraduate program and graduate degrees there.
Officials from Freed-Hardeman and the Jackson Foundation executed the transfer of ownership of the center on Friday.
The university says that in addition to offering college courses, it will continue to operate the Renaissance Center as a community venue for classes, meetings and performances for children and adults.
The Renaissance Center opened in 1999. It includes classroom space, conference rooms, film and video production studios, theater areas and offices.
More than 300 students already attend college courses at the facility as part of programs offered by Nashville State Community College and Austin Peay State University.
