The Arts & Science Center
The Arts and Science Center is a busy, academic space on campus that is home to both the School of Arts and Humanities and the School of Sciences and Mathematics. The A&S building is host to classrooms, science labs, faculty offices and computer labs. A&S is a main part of our wireless campus.
The A&S Center is an integral part of the cultural life of the campus. Students, faculty, staff and visitors to the college enjoy lectures, theatrical performances, seminars and panel discussions in the Little Theatre year-round. The Little Theater was renovated during the summer of 2005.
The M. Christina Geis Art Gallery on the second floor exhibits the talents of students, professors and professional artists with signature shows in multiple media: sculpture, painting, the graphic arts, stained glass, photography and more.
The Discovery Garden is an outdoor fusion of art and science. It features an outdoor classroom and a brass sculpture representation of our solar system, at the center of which is a sundial accurate to within five minutes. The Discovery Garden is a unique blend of art and nature that teaches fundamental scientific concepts such as time, mass and space.
The latest addition to the Arts and Science Center is the Audrey Birish George Science Wing. The new wing contains teaching laboratories for both the Biology and the Chemistry departments and provides new student and faculty research space. State-of-the-art scientific lab equipment helps Georgian Court faculty and students engage in varied and important research such as synthetic bone development, the chemical properties and biological effects of stinging nettle, and the efficacy and use of substances for dermatology to name a few.
The 14,000 square feet area is complete with a greenhouse used for ecology research, faculty office space, a 40-seat lecture hall and student lounge. Features of the facility include a new tiered lecture hall, laboratories with energy efficient low-flow fume hoods, and safety showers and eyewash stations.
