Some of you remember that our total science facilities were the bio lab in the basement of Luther Hall and the chemistry lab on the top floor. In 1993 we added a wing to Luther that included a new biology (L 322) and a new chemistry space (L 313). Those two labs are still in service. In 2003 we made a third room into lab space, Luther 311. Three years ago we remodeled the old chemistry lab space into a state-of-the-art human cadaver dissection area and a small physics lab and we converted an old office into a student research area. All of these were terrific additions that helped us continue to grow. Our enrollments now have filled these classrooms and we are finding it very difficult to schedule laboratory classes in these spaces. To put it briefly, we need more room!"

An Analytical Chemistry laboratory will provide a new range of possibilities for experiments, and also opportunities to add Chemistry, Biochemistry, Environmental Chemistry, and Food Chemistry lab classes. With three additional labs, students will gain increased opportunities for lab time at more convenient hours."
