CREWS ARE WORKING ON TWO BIG ADDITIONS TO CAMPUS to relieve pressure on class and lab space. A science building (see illustration) is going up near the Elliott Building. It’ll consolidate the School of Earth and Ocean Sciences from various locations and a campus landmark—the astronomy observatory—will be relocated to the new building. A social sciences and mathematics building will occupy a former parking lot near the Sedgewick Building. Four departments and a water/climate research group will be housed there. Both buildings should be ready by autumn 2008.
