The college’s science building, Olin Rice Science Center, underwent nearly a $20-million renovation and expansion during the mid 1990s. This significantly increased classroom, office and laboratory space. In addition to classroom laboratories, each faculty member maintains his/her own research lab space where research is conducted along with students. Students in laboratory courses, as well as those involved in original research, routinely have hands-on access to state-of-the-art instrumentation and equipment.
