Optimist Pago 4
to be refurbished
ly Levi Turner
For the part 45 yean tho original
science building has served thousands
of ACU students without major
renovations to Its plumbing wiring or
many of its fixtures.
The $2.5 million challenge grant
given by the J.E. and L.E. Mabee
Foundation to the College of Natural
and Applied Sciences during Opening
Chapel will help fund the
modernization of the structure.
Dr. Finis Cavender director of
development for tho College of
Natural and Applied Sciences said
tho building is not "state of the art" by
today's standards nor does It meet
some current regulations.
"The science building was built in
1946 when thero were not many
regulations" said Cavender. "There
ore many new regulations since this
building was built."
The Science Building was the first
major addition to the campus after
ACU was moved to its present
location in 1929.
In 1962 the building underwent
some minor renovations and was
named tho Foster Science Building In
honor of Otto and Mattie Foster who
helped to make the renovations
Seven years later the original
building underwent a modest facelift
and the floor space was tripled by the
addition of the East and West Science
Halls and Walling Lecture Hall.
Dr. Olenn Davis doan of the
College of Natural and Applied
Sciences said new plumbing wiring
windows doors furniture ceilings
and conduits for computer labs and
telephone modems will give the
students excellent classrooms.
According to a Foster Science
Building Campaign brochure tho
entire science building can be
renovated for approximately one-third
the cost of a comparable new facility.
Renovation will bo done in two
stages. The original building will be
renovated first followed by the pewer
halls according to the brochure.
The first stage will cost about $3 5
million and the actual renovation
work will begin during Christmas
