OPEN FALL 2013
Richard S. Shineman Center for Science, Engineering and Innovation
The Shineman Center, named for the chemistry department's first chair, the late Richard S. Shineman, presented students, faculty and staff with state-of-the-art equipment, feature-rich new classrooms and labs, artfully placed study lounges, marquee features such as a planetarium, a soaring atrium called the Nucleus, a rooftop greenhouse and miles of new corridors to navigate.
For now, the fully refurbished original wing of the building-formerly Piez Hall-is the Observation Wing of the Shineman Center, while the four-story addition is the Innovation Wing. Students quickly had to get used to the fact it takes a few stairs or dual-door elevators to traverse from one wing to the other on floors two through four, due to differing ceiling heights.
Rice Creek Field Station
The college's living laboratory at Rice Creek opened its new headquarters, with its signature sloped roof set in the midst of 400 acres of woodlands and meadows, ponds and streams. The existing Ruth Sachidanandan Herb Garden provides color for a nearby new pavilion, maintenance building and two rain gardens that filter runoff. The observatory has moved there from the Romney Field House parking lot.
Diann Jackson, assistant director of the field station, praised the features of the new structure. Built to LEED gold standards, as was the Shineman Center, the field station showcases high-ceilinged dry and wet labs (the latter using chemicals), a classroom with a moveable wall to open up to the dry lab, research lab, collections room and a mudroom and shower for faculty and students coming in from work in the field.
A bluestone feature wall rises 30 feet above the entrance lobby's floor, welcoming students, faculty and the greater Oswego community to a new era at Rice Creek, founded with a gift to the college in 1966.
