We are moving!

In preparation for the remodel of the existing Science Building chemistry and physics faculty are beginning to move into temporary locations.  Most faculty are moving to the computing and engineering building (CEB) with a few moving to Isle Hall (ISLE) and a few to new locations in the Science Building (SCI).  Locations will be updated on the website as soon as possible after moves are complete.  Please call or email if you have any questions!
