ST. GEORGE – Dixie State College of Utah will officially break ground on its new Edward H. and Idonna E. Snow Science Building with a special ceremony on Friday, March 2, at 1 p.m., on the lawn just north of the Val A. Browning Library on the DSC campus.

The event is free and open to the public to attend and light refreshments will be served.

The new Edward H. and Idonna E. Snow Science Building will tie into the already existing Browning Library. When completed, the new two-story Snow Science Building will feature 10,000 square feet of science labs for the physical sciences department. The upper floor will include an organic chemistry lab, general chemistry lab and a chemical stockroom and storage room. The upper floor will also have access from the parking lot to the north with a tall clearstory entry and small study area.

The lower floor will include a chemistry analytical lab, chemistry instrument lab, stock room, weighing room, oven room, geology lab and a geology storage room. The lower floor will tie into the main level as accessed from the south.

The current Browning Library will be relocated to the new Jeffrey R. Holland Centennial Commons Building on the DSC campus over the summer. Once that move is completed, renovation of the existing library will begin to transform the building into mathematics and physical science faculty offices and general-use classrooms for both departments.

DSC officials note that the completion of the HCC will also lead to even more campus additions and relocation projects in the coming months and years. For more information, please contact DSC Vice President of Development George F. Whitehead at 435-652-7906 or email at [email protected]
