Today was the first day of use for the new microbiology lab. Our BIOL 3410 class met there for lecture (mutations and repair systems of bacteria) and lab (streaking plates and doing stains to see microbes in food). Although we are not anywhere NEAR ready to call the move-in a “done deal”, we’re making enough progress to move the class from our sparse classroom upstairs to the well-equipped classroom/lab downstairs.
Official ribbon-cutting will be Saturday November 6th. We have a Student Preview for prospective students that day and then a football game that afternoon, followed by the dedication of the renovated facilities and ending with the McMurry Science & Math Advisory Board Wall of Honor Induction Dinner. Whew! Will be a busy day! Hope you can be part of it!
