Wrigley Celebrates Grand Opening of Williston State College's New Science Center
BISMARCK, N.D. – Lt. Gov. Drew Wrigley today joined university and community officials in celebrating the grand opening of Williston State College’s (WSC) new science center. The $3.5 million project is an addition to the university’s Stevens Hall and provides additional space for science laboratories and classrooms that feature state-of-the-art equipment and technology. The state provided $2.9 million for the addition.
“Education is an integral part of our efforts to grow our economy and build a strong future for our state,” Wrigley said. “This new science center is a great example of how Williston State College and colleges and universities across the state are enhancing educational opportunities to prepare our young people for the careers of the future.”
The new center covers 10,000 square feet and will house four science laboratories for physics, chemistry, biology and engineering. The addition will also include classrooms and offices for science department instructors.
Wrigley participated in a dedication ceremony along with WSC President Ray Nadolny, WSC Foundation Executive Director Terry Olson, Math and Science Department Chair Lance Olson and other university and community officials. The program was followed by tours of the new addition.
