Scientific progress at Wilson College

January 30, 2008

The $25 million renovation and expansion of Wilson College's science center was in full swing Tuesday in Chambersburg, Pa. The 51,500-square-foot Havens Science Center was built in 1967, and is a bland, boxy piece of institutional architecture from that era. The two-story, 25,000-square-foot addition will mimic the Victorian-era stone facades and steeply pitched roofs of other campus buildings. The project is being financed with a $29 million bond issue, which includes the cost of construction, along with $3 million for equipment and furnishings and a maintenance fund, Jeff Zufeld, Wilson's vice president for college advancement, said in September.
