On tour, many people ask about all of the construction going on near the academic building. I’m proud to tell them that it is one of the newest additions to the Lewis campus: the science center. The groundbreaking for this new 80,000 square foot addition happened October 13, 2010. It will contain new laboratories and research centers for students. This $16.1 million dollar project was undertaken in response to a dramatic increase in undergraduate science students over the past five years.
This addition is just one of many exciting planned changes on campus. Some others include a new elevator in the LRC, a new place to eat on the south end of campus, a new football field/athletic arena, restoration of our soccer field/track, and renovation of rooms in the academic building.
This is a very exciting time to be a part of Lewis, and I look forward to seeing these plans come to fruition over time!
