  • To Better Understand the Natural World

    Neil Tyson"The Sis and Herman Dupré Science Pavilion at Saint Vincent College is more than just a building. It's a symbol of the school's commitment to science education. I am particularly impressed by the facility's innovative design elements -- inspired by science and math themes -- alongside its multi-use labs where different sciences can cross-pollinate their methods, tools, and ideas toward a greater understanding of the physical world. The country needs this right now."
