McCardell Bicentennial Hall
Completed in the year 2000 to commemorate the College’s Bicentennial, Bicentennial Hall contains 220,000 square feet of research, teaching, and office space as well as the science library.

We are located in McCardell Bicentennial Hall, a beautiful building at the northern edge of campus which houses all the science departments.

Our facilities are state-of-the-art and our instrumentation is extensive and current. The chemistry and biochemistry curricula provide students with comprehensive training on various instruments.

Instrumentation

Our modern instrumentation is used by students and faculty in both traditional courses and a wide range of cutting-edge, collaborative research projects.
