March 23: The site is prepared for construction.

Construction of the Lawrence and Sally Cohen Science Center has been progressing rapidly since the groundbreaking in March 2012. The impressive transformation has been captured each day by a camera located at the top of Sturdevant Hall.  Here’s a look at various stages of the project in the photos at right.

Crews are working on the building’s interior and anticipate construction will conclude this summer. You’re invited to be a part of history when we dedicate the Lawrence and Sally Cohen Science Center at Homecoming 2013 on October 4, 2013 at 4 p.m.  More details will be available in the coming months, but mark your calendar now so you don’t miss this exciting event!
