Science literacy is needed in America now more than ever, which is why St. Bonaventure embarked on one of the most ambitious projects in the university's history — construction of the William F. Walsh Science Center and the renovation of De La Roche Hall.
The new science center, a 46,500-square-foot addition that opened in fall of 2008, houses state-of-the-art computer science, laboratory and classroom space, biology labs, organic and general chemistry labs, a Natural World lab, a 150-seat indoor amphitheater, and faculty offices integrated with lab space for better student-teacher accessibility.
Work also included a top-to-bottom renovation of the historic De La Roche, the oldest academic building on campus. The renovations have many of the same finishes used in the new Walsh Center to help provide a more seamless connection of new and old.
The initiative doubles the academic space available to students studying the sciences at St. Bonaventure.
