Why The science building is one of the first components to be undertaken of a $270-million,
10-year plan President Farish introduced last year. The plan calls for the construction of new
buildings and renovation of others; the purchase of property in the area to expand the
campus; an increase in programs, including new master-level degree programs; an increase
in the number of full-time faculty; and many student initiatives.
The new three-story, 150,000-square-foot science building will house the Biology, Chemistry
and Physics departments and include state-of-the-art laboratories as well as a planetarium,
rooftop greenhouse and observation deck and 16-inch telescope housed in a rooftop dome.
