Your Lab Fees at Work

The new academic laboratory fees have been used to make improvements for teaching labs and purchasing lab supplies and equipment. Most recently, labs in the departments of Biology, Environmental Conservation, Geosciences, and Physics have been updated.

Summer/Fall 2016


  • Morrill IV N 301 was completely upgraded, and now has new floors, ceiling, paint, interactive projection equipment, updated air systems, biosafety cabinets, lab benches and seating.
  • Morrill IV N 301A has cubbies to store backpacks and jackets, new flooring, new lighting, and new cabinetry.
  • Morrill III 108 is the new home of the intro classes for Geosciences majors and has been updated with lab seating, new audio visual equipment and will soon have many new pieces of interactive equipment to enhance the learning experience.
  • In Hasbrouck, we worked on the Physics Teaching Labs, combining rooms 208, 210, 212 and 214 to create two large classrooms that are brighter and more efficient. These labs now have new interactive projection, paint, lighting, flooring, lab benches, seating, built-in cubbies for backpacks, as well as updated plumbing, electrical and air systems.


Winter 2016


  • Morrill III, Room 339, now has new projection equipment, AC, shades, electrical drops, lab benches and seating.
  • Morrill III, Room 343, improvements include lab benches, seating, electrical drops, AC, projection equipment, and exhaust fans.
  • Projection equipment was also added to five additional teaching labs in Morrill.
  • Electrical drops were added in Biology teaching labs to make microscopy more convenient and eliminates tripping hazards.
  • In Hasbrouck, Physics Teaching Lab initial upgrades consisted of cosmetic improvements and better lighting.
  • ECO teaching labs in Holdsworth have new technology that allows for team based learning!

More renovations will be undertaken in Summer 2017 in Morrill IV room 303 and Hasbrouck 201, 201a, 202, 204 and 206 so that they'll be ready for the start of the 2017 fall semester.
