By fall of 2012, the skeleton of the science center was forged, giving a better understanding of just how grand the space would be.

February 2013


Only five months later, things were taking shape in the interior of the building.

July 2013


By the summer of 2013, the center was nearly complete. The classrooms for biology, chemistry, environmental sciences, forensic science and nursing are state-of-the art.


The lecture hall seats 126 people.


The stairwell leads down to a lower level filled with top-notch classrooms and laboratories.


Faculty, staff, students, alumni and friends of the college were able to purchase inscribed bricks, which were installed in the front walkway.
