Following its renovation, Carr Laboratory reopened in February. Carr is a crossroads of the sciences, a place where adjacent labs and offices and shared equipment encourage interactions among faculty and students with overlapping research interests.

The renovation and reconstruction of Shattuck Hall, will be completed by September. Cleveland Hall's renovation will also be completed then. The science center is a funding initiative of the Campaign for Mount Hoyoke College.
