Linfield University’s Science Center is Complete

After nearly 10 years of planning and 19 months of construction, the new Linfield University Science Complex, featuring the brand-new W.M. Keck Science Center, is officially open. The 84,400 SF complex gives Linfield students the chance to do high levels of undergraduate research, whether that’s mutations to mitochondrial DNA or fermentation in the Evenstad Wine Laboratory. Research space has increased 232% for Linfield University students!

It was an incredible day of celebration (and snow) for the Grand Opening. Despite temperatures in the 20s, hundreds of people including students, faculty, alumni, McMinnville dignitaries and the public turned out to celebrate the grand opening, which included speeches from President Miles K. Davis, biochemistry and molecular biology major and French minor Natalie Wise ’24, a blessing from Chaplain Jeremy Richards and comments from Kerry Carmody, chair of the Spark Wonder Campaign and chair of the Linfield University Board of Trustees.

Many congratulations to Linfield University, SRG Partnership and our WALSH team of Aaron ElliottRichard Stephensen, Nolan Knox and Sara Schubert for the successful completion of this innovative project.
