A Sept. 4 ribbon-cutting ceremony showcased chemistry labs on the third floor of Mellon Hall that were upgraded as part of Duquesne’s continuing commitment to provide students with the best possible educational facilities.
The labs offer tables with video monitors to easily see and learn techniques from instructors, along with plenty of storage. Dr. David Seybert, professor and former dean; former Provost Dr. Ralph Pearson; and President Dr. Charles J. Dougherty committed $1.1 million to the renovations. The renovations committee visited other institutions before opting for a plan based on renovations at Cleveland State University.
