Over the summer, the college made finishing touches to the Rockwell Integrated Sciences Center (RISC) in preparation for the arrival of new and returning students. Construction on the college’s $75 million and 100,000 square foot project began in May 2017 with the goal to expand the room for the STEM majors and create a shared space for students and faculty members to collaborate.
