Students, faculty and staff are enjoying our new Life Sciences Building, which officially opened for spring semester classes in January 2019. Construction attention is now focused on the neighboring S.J. and Jessie E. Quinney Biology-Natural Resources Building, which was intially built in 1958.

Many alumni will remember biology classes and labs in the building, along with the building foyer’s “Untitled Mosaic, 1962” mural by Gaell Lindstrom and Everett C. Thorpe. That iconic art piece remains in place, as $23 million renovations refurbish outdated labs, classrooms and offices, and expand the building’s entry area, to more comfortably accommodate students.
