The BGES department wishes to thank the CSU Administration for acquiring funds from the State of Ohio (House Bill HB 497) for the roughly 5 million dollars to renovate the teaching laboratories in SI.  Construction phase I is well underway and includes SI 240, 241, 242 and 249.  This phase will also bring a new lounge area. Construction phase 2 will start in late August and includes SI 224, 225 and 226.  Construction phase 3 will commence in Spring 2018 and includes the third floor rooms SI 320, 321 and 326.  The final phase will involve renovation to SI 150 and SR 257.  

We respectfully ask for your patience as we progress through the inconvenience (with respect to noise and temporary lab space) that major construction invariably entails. But, we are excited and pleased to be able to provide state of the art facilities (including a new, larger tissue culture facility) to serve the more than 3,000 students (both majors and non-majors) enrolled in our laboratory courses.  CSU BGES Construction Rendering 2017
