Conn College opens science center

New London - Connecticut College has opened a new $25 million center to house its science departments. The Science Center project included a complete renovation of New London Hall, the oldest building on campus. The school also put on a 14,000-square-foot addition to that building and renovated its greenhouse.

The center, funded mostly through gifts to the college, will serve as home to the school's biology, botany and computer science departments, which will see a 28 percent increase in classroom and research space.

The college says the building also was constructed to be environmentally friendly and includes a geothermal heating and cooling system.
