Renovation of Caylor-White-Walters continues

Started in the Spring semester of 2010, the long-planned renovation of Caylor-White-Walters Hall continues to progress, now at a more rapid pace. Current work is focused on completing the interior of the new addition to the building. The addition will house new laboratory facilities for much of the science curriculum. After lab classes are moved into the addition, renovation of the existing Caylor Hall and White-Walters Hall will begin. When the entire project is finished, the Division of Biological and Physical Sciences and the Department of Mathematics will have brand new digs.

Annual Division student/faculty cookout

All science majors (biology, chemistry, environmental science, any pre-health professions) are invited to the annual Division of Biological and Physical Sciences Cookout. This is a great opportunity to meet other science majors and all the Division faculty in a fun informal way. And of course – FREE FOOD! Please come and mingle with all the science nerds! Those of you that have been in the Division for a while know that we try to maintain a “family atmosphere.” If you are new to the Division, come join the family. If you have been in the family for a while, come welcome the new folks.
