Gettysburg College Science Building 7. The Science Complex, which opened in August 2002, includes a new 90,000-sf, multi-disciplinary Science Building, a 2,400-sf greenhouse, and nearly 50,000 sf of renovated space in two existing buildings. The new Science Building houses chemistry, neuroscience, biochemistry/molecular biology, environmental studies, and health and exercise science. The total project cost $26.6 million, including $18.8 million for the Science Building, $1 million for the greenhouse, and $2.5 million for equipment.
The external design and internal features of the new building were rooted in Gettysburg's educational and cultural philosophy. Gettysburg is a small liberal arts college enrolling about 2,500 undergraduates, one-third of whom major in the sciences, including psychology. The College places a high priority on teaching: The average class size is 18 and 60 percent of classes have fewer than 15 students. At the same time, Gettysburg expects its faculty to engage in scientific research.
Gettysburg is a national college of liberal arts and sciences located in the world-famous town of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Our 2,600 students are actively involved in an academically rigorous and personally challenging educational experience.
