Stanislaus to renovate original science building

California State University, Stanislaus received funding to modernize its original science building, built in 1971. The 51,000 gross square foot Science I building was taken offline when the Naraghi Hall of Science opened at the campus in fall 2007. The building has seen very limited use since that time. The two-year renovation project will return the facility to use as classrooms, laboratory space and faculty offices that will house our growing nursing and social work programs. Construction is scheduled to begin Jan. 4, 2012.
