Thank you to all who joined the College of Science in person, and in spirit, on April 5, to celebrate the completion of the Life Sciences Building.

Featured speakers included USU alums Ronald Jibson of the Utah State Higher Education Board of Regents, and Gage Froerer, Weber County Commissioner and former Utah state legislator, along with USU President Noelle Cockett, College of Science Dean Maura Hagan and Quinney College of Natural Resources Dean Chris Luecke.

Following the ceremony, artists who crafted works for the new building, including Amy Landesberg, Mark Pomilio, Jerry Fuhriman and Woody Shepherd, along with Visual Arts Manager Jim Glenn of the Utah Division of Arts and Museums, presented a panel discussion, moderated by Katie Lee-Koven, executive director of USU’s Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art.

We especially thank our student College of Science ambassadors and Science Council members for serving as hosts and tour guides for the festive gathering.
