Tiffin University to celebrate beam setting ceremony for its new Center for Science and Technology
Tiffin, Ohio — As Tiffin University’s new Center for Science and Technology framing nears completion, students, faculty, staff and the community are invited to a Beam Setting Ceremony on April 20 at 2 p.m.
The event will include the raising and placement of the last steel beam with brief remarks by TU’s President, Dr. Lillian Schumacher.
Celebrate this meaningful milestone by signing the last beam that will be added to the construction of the building. The beam will be available to TU students, faculty and staff until April 20 in Osceola, located in the Gillmor Center. Participants can sign anywhere on the white beam. The beam can also be signed at the ceremony.
The Center for Science and Technology will be seamlessly located between the Hertzer Technology Center and the existing science laboratories. This new 18,891 square foot facility will provide space for three labs, two large classrooms, faculty offices and an exercise science lab. These labs will utilize experiential learning, collaborative problem solving and creative thought processes that will equip Tiffin University graduates with the skills needed for professional success in the 21st century workforce.
“The addition of this new facility is a critical step toward TU’s mission of linking knowledge to professional practice,” Dr. Lillian Schumacher said. “Tiffin University has been presented with the opportunity to help students succeed by creating a new and innovative learning environment. Science and technology are among our fastest-growing areas of study, and it is vital we provide students with adequate space to learn and practice necessary skills in a laboratory setting.”
The Center for Science and Technology will open before the fall semester with a formal ribbon cutting.
