Tome Hall (2000-present)

Tome Hall, 2003

In October 2000, the New Science Building, at Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania was dedicated during homecoming weekend.

The structure is located across Louther Street from the Holland Union Building next to the James Center. Construction of the $13.3 million building had begun two years earlier, and classes had been held within its walls since the fall of 1999. Designed by the architectural firm of Ellensweig Associates, the new building contains enlarged classroom and laboratory space, faculty offices, and a large lecture hall in addition to the Kanev planetarium and the Britton observatory. The building houses the departments of mathematics, physics and astronomy, and computer science.

In Fall 2001, with the renaming of the Tome Scientific Building as the Stern Center for Global Education, the "New Science Building" was also rechristened as the New Tome Building.
