Whitworth students began attending classes at the new Robinson Science Hall this fall school year.
The new $32 million academic facility is home to Whitworth's biology, chemistry and health science departments. Originally those departments were housed in the Eric Johnston Science Center along with other departments, but now they have more room to breathe.
The new silver LEED certified hall also features state-of-the-art laboratories, research facilities and classrooms.
The Eric Johnston Science Center is now slated for some remodeling. Public information officer, Emily Proffitt says the exact date is yet to be determined, but it will happen in the next few years.
The new hall is being celebrated as part of the school's Homecoming events.
