The Arts & Science Building underwent an initial renovation in 2012 that introduced cutting edge, environmentally friendly “green” fume hoods in four of its newly renovated laboratories. During this second phase of the renovation, which began January 2014, the focus will now shift to providing classroom space for the arts program while adding a Physics and Optics lab for the science program.

Arts & Science Phase II will add the following classrooms to the program:
The renovation project will also add faculty offices, lounges, an art gallery, a conference seminar room, and remodeled restrooms. The college plans to achieve LEED certification for the building and will have the following green attributes:
Construction work on the Arts and Science Phase II renovation is scheduled to be completed by October 2014, in time for the Class of 2018.
