Grand opening set for Computer Science Building

Updated April 23, 2009

Colorado State University will celebrate the completion of the $14 million Computer Science Building with a grand opening ceremony 4-5:30 p.m. Friday, April 24 (rescheduled from April 17 due to inclement weather) on the southwest corner of the new building, located on the plaza across from the Lory Student Center.

Welcome, introductions, and comments will be held from 4-4:30 p.m., followed by a reception with refreshments and building tours. 

Students in every major benefit

The four-story, 45,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility in the heart of the main campus includes three main laboratories on the ground floor, one of which is available to students 24-hours per day, seven days a week.

Funding for the building was provided in large part through the fee advisory board, part of Associated Students of Colorado State University. The vote by the student body government in January 2007 secured $12.9 million for the project, which serves students in every major.

Facility opened in January

Students began using the new facility in January at the start of the spring semester. The new facility also houses the Department of Computer Science, which is ranked among the top 60 programs in the nation and CSU's Information Science & Technology Center, or ISTeC.

"We are now poised for Computer Science and Information Technology research and education to advance to new and exciting levels of excellence at Colorado State," said Jan Nerger, interim dean of the College of Natural Sciences.

Investment in our future

"The scholarly achievements that will emerge from this building in the fields of artificial intelligence, network security, human-computer interactions, and high performance computing, will be a tribute to the students and donors who invested in our future."
