Members of the public are invited to join Northwestern College students, faculty and staff for the dedication of the Jack and Mary DeWitt Family Science Center. An open house will follow the 4 p.m. ceremony on Friday, Sept. 28.
Built for a total of $24.5 million, the building is devoted exclusively to the health and natural sciences. Classrooms, laboratories and faculty offices for the departments of biology, chemistry and nursing occupy the three floors of the 61,000-square-foot facility. The DeWitt Family Science Center was named in honor of Jack and Mary DeWitt of Holland, Mich., who contributed the $6 million lead gift for the building—the largest single gift in Northwestern’s history.
