LaGrange College opens $21 million science complex

LaGrange -- Instead of using the traditional supersized scissors, LaGrange College officially opened its $21 million science complex Friday with a chemical reaction that burned the ceremonial ribbon.

The creative ceremony symbolized the project’s purpose: produce top-notch science facilities, designed to prepare top-notch science graduates, poised for top-notch science careers.

“We began raising funds for this project in 2014,” LaGrange College president Dan McAlexander said during the ceremony, according to a news release. “Now, seven years later, this facility is going to change the future of this college and this community, transforming lives and taking students places they would have never dreamed of going.”

The project comprises two buildings: the newly constructed, $17 million, 43,000-square-foot Ida Callaway Hudson Lab Sciences Building and, across the street, the 45-year-old, 27,000-square-foot Cason J. Callaway Science Building, updated with $4 million worth of renovations.
