Finch-Gray Science Center (“Science Building”)
The science building houses the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, along with geosciences, on the second floor, and the Department of Biology and Physics on the first floor. The building was built in 1967 and saw extensive renovation of the first floor in 2010. Along with classrooms and teaching labs, research space is also extensively utilized.
