Williams Hosts South Science Building Open House
Dozens of residents and member of the Williams College community made their way through the brightly lit halls of the new South Science Building last week.
iberkshires.com reports the $66 million structure that's been rising off Walden Street for nearly two years was opened to the public for two hours last Wednesday evening.
The move into the new building began a few weeks ago as soon as it was certified for occupancy. The college expects to work out the kinks this summer — the summer science program has about 200 participants — and have the building ready for the fall semester.
Bronfman was built in the late 1960s, for $3.9 million at the time, but can no longer support the college's science departments. The plan is to construct two additions to the Unified Science Center with a south building on the Walden Street side and a north building where Bronfman is currently located. Both buildings will be connected by bridges to the Unified Science Center.
