The $5 million expansion project at Cedarville University of its new chemistry building is on schedule to open, and for professors to move in, on May 1, 2015. The new facility sits along Bridge Street, along the southwest corner of campus. The university successfully raised all of the funds for the project. According to Dennis Flentge, chair of the department of science and mathematics and senior professor of chemistry, his department plans to begin moving equipment into the building on May 1. It is expected to be fully operational by June 2015.
With Cedarville’s increase in students majoring in biology and chemistry, having a building devoted to these disciplines strengthens the academic integrity of the program. The new building will create a net increase of six laboratories: two for biology, two for chemistry, one lab for general chemistry, and a research lab with improved hood capabilities for better air quality overall.
