About 70 students from across the country attended the first day of classes Monday at Manchester University's new College of Pharmacy.

The $20 million, 80,000-square-foot building is on Diebold Road, near Parkview Regional Medical Center.

Forty percent of the students are from Indiana, while the rest come from across the country. The student body is 54 percent white and 60 percent female, according to university officials.

The building has a capacity of 280 students, which officials say is plenty of space to accommodate future degree programs.
