College Station, Texas- Texas A&M’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences unveiled its new Wildlife, Fisheries and Ecological Sciences building on September 15.
The 80,000-square foot structure is located on West Campus in the Agriculture and Life Sciences Complex on John Kimbrough Boulevard.
This 5-story building includes two floors of state-of-the-art laboratories, such as a laser laboratory and an aquarium research laboratory. The new addition to West Campus also serves as a research facility for undergraduate and graduate students as well as containing high-tech classrooms.
“What makes these buildings special is that they serve as a central home for one of Texas A&M’s founding colleges,” said Mark A. Hussey, Vice Chancellor and Dean for the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. “This complex is a commitment to continue our legacy into the future.”
Many honorable guests attended the grand opening including Texas A&M University President Michael Young at the AgriLife Center along with Dylan Wallace, class of ’17 range management major.
“This new building will provide an even better resource to continue the great work [our faculty] already do,” Wallace said. “The educational experience that our faculty extends to us reaches far beyond the classroom.”
