Discovery Hall: Home to the School of STEM

Building Construction

Opened for classes in fall 2015, Discovery Hall is a state-of-the-art science and academic building. With 74,000 square feet, the building features 11 labs, and space for 1,000 students.

"I really like the hands-on experiences that we get from the program. We are actually solving real-world problems in the lab and doing things that we will be doing when we start working outside of school.” Renee Delgadillo, Electrical Engineering, Class of 2015
