For years, Jacksonville State University's biology and chemistry labs have been needing an upgrade. Students had to vie for crowded lab space in Ayers Hall.
But now all that has changed. On Monday, April 16, at 2:00 p.m. JSU will dedicate its new McGee Science Center. The ceremony will be held in front of the archway between McGee Center and Martin Hall.
McGee Center is equipped with state-of-the-art labs, many of which were designed by JSU professors. Labs are spacious to accommodate class loads and student and professor work areas.
Classes have begun in McGee Center and some students are noticing the difference. "McGee Center is a world of improvement over Ayers Hall," says Tiffany Bowman, a biology major at JSU. "We're now able to learn science the way it should be learned."
Martin Hall, which is directly adjacent to McGee Center, will house offices for biology, physics and earth science faculty.
The agenda for the dedication includes music by the JSU Brass Choir, dedications by Dean J. Earl Wade of College of Arts and Sciences at JSU; Miranda Killingsworth, president, Student Government Association; and Dr. Bill Meehan, President of JSU. The ribbon cutting will be performed by Dr. Harold McGee. Refreshments will also be served.
JSU Ambassadors will provide tours of the new labs and facilities.
