Anderson Hall

The $75 million Evelyn M. Anderson Hall, named to honor pioneering scientist Evelyn Anderson Haymaker ’21, P ’59, P ’60, P ’61 had its soft opening in 2019. The official christening, postponed due to COVID-19, will take place when everyone is back on campus.

In the meantime, the thoroughly modern, naturally lit complex is buzzing with socially distanced activity, as both students and faculty members are coming to appreciate its innovative composition and inviting aesthetic.

My first thought was just, ‘Wow!’

I walked in and loved how much natural light there was. I just thought, ‘This is beautiful.’

Walking into the building, it comes off very crisp.

I find the space inviting, open, grand, and all about science, albeit a relaxed version of it.
