It’s been a decade of planning. Seven years of fundraising. Eleven months of construction. Nearly 2,600 donors contributed over $14.9 million to create a state-of-the-art facility for science and mathematics at Union College. Now the Krueger Center for Science and Mathematics is a reality.
On March 5, the building officially opened and many classes moved into the new building right away. On May 8, a grand opening ceremony marked the completion of the facility.
Fifty-nine percent of Union College students major in fields in or closely related to mathematics and the sciences, and the new 57,000-square-foot facility gives thoseprograms room to grow and thrive. The building includes:
• A 126-seat amphitheater
• Two configurable classrooms for lecture or team learning
• Two combination biology lab/lecture spaces
• Five dedicated biology teaching laboratories
• Five chemistry teaching laboratories
• Two combination lab/lecture spaces for physics and engineering
• One teaching laboratory for modern physics
• Eight research labs for faculty and students to engage in personal research projects
• Four student commons and study spaces
• Fourteen faculty offices for teacher/student interactions such as advising and tutoring
• Dedicated work areas for student assistants
