The Mars Center for Science and Technology opened with the official dedication ceremony on September 23. Through the coming year we’ll be celebrating and exploring the new building as students and faculty are settling in and “Mars Science” is finding its place on campus.

As always, for the full story on science visit The Sciences at Wheaton, where you’ll find news about students, faculty and alumnae/i, and information on science departments, programs and courses.

Official Dedication Invitation

Please join me and Wheaton’s Board of Trustees at 3 p.m. on Friday, September 23 for the official dedication of the new Mars Center for Science and Technology. The ceremony will include remarks from trustees and faculty, a special musical piece created for the occasion by Assistant Professor of Music Delvyn Case and Professor of English Sue Standing, and a unique ribbon-cutting. Please come celebrate with us!

The ceremony will be followed by tours of this amazing, LEED-certified building, the largest construction project ever undertaken by the college. Even if you have already seen the inside of the building, you will find the tour interesting. I look forward to seeing you there.

Best wishes,
