HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Students, faculty and administrators at William Carey University are celebrating two important new buildings and the the 100th birthday of the Hattiesburg campus' oldest structure. Last week, WCU dedicated its new two-story, School of Business Building.

It includes a large lobby with a grand staircase, two lecture halls, five classrooms and a computer lab.

Nearby is the new Bass Memorial Chapel, which was also dedicated last week. It can seat up to 100 people and will be open daily as a site for meditation and reflection.

And also last week, the WCU community hosted a centennial celebration for Tatum Court, which is the administration building.

It was built in 1914 for nearly $313,000 and has undergone five renovations.
