Greeted by gleaming glass and the promise of further deepening Lafayette’s interdisciplinary connections, students, faculty, and staff settled into the new Rockwell Integrated Sciences Center today.

Rockwell, the largest capital project in Lafayette’s history, joins Acopian Engineering Center and Hugel Science Center to create a hub of scientific inquiry on Anderson Courtyard. Jaws dropped as utterings of “wow” could be heard from students experiencing Rockwell’s expansive views and spacious, comfortable collaborative areas for the first time.

Rockwell houses the biology, computer science, and environmental science and environmental studies programs, as well as Dyer Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Daniel and Heidi Hanson ’91 Center for Inclusive STEM Education, and Office of Sustainability. A dedication ceremony is planned for Sept. 27 at 5 p.m.

Here are images from the first day of classes by Clay Wegrzynowicz.
