An exciting new chapter in our commitment to providing a world-class education begins with the opening of our new $110-million Science and Mathematics Complex.
Phase I of construction is scheduled for completion in 2012; Phase II is scheduled for completion in 2016.
Featuring state-of-the-art laboratories and classrooms, dedicated space for interdisciplinary and faculty-student collaboration, and a public planetarium, the complex will transform how students, faculty, industry, and community experience science and mathematics at Buffalo State.
The Anthropogy Department's facilities include a large well-equipped laboratory and storage rooms for archaeology and physical anthropology. Holdings include human and primate skeletal material; Wenner-Gren and Philadelphia Museum Fossil Man casts; surveying, excavating, and photographic equipment; as well as osteometric and anthropometric instruments.
The Eckert Herbarium houses a collection of vascular plants, focusing on the flora of Western New York. A much smaller number of specimens come from elsewhere in New York state and the United States, mostly notably from coastal Maine and northern Florida. The earliest specimen dates from 1861; a small number date from the turn of the twentieth century, but the great majority date from the 1960s, 1970s, and the 1980s.
Located on Buffalo's waterfront, the Field Station is the hub of the Great Lake Center's field work. Boasting a fleet of 15 vessels, a microscopy lab, and a fisheries lab, the Field Station, conducting research and providing data that will help us protect Western New York’s greatest natural resource, Lake Erie.
A connected suite of rooms where students can learn, study, use computers, and practice their skills.
Health and wellness students use the facilities in the Sports Complex—the Ice Arena, two gymnasiums, Kissinger Pool, the state-of-the-art fitness center, resource room, and computer lab—to learn, develop, and apply their knowledge.
Buffalo's only planetarium, the Whitworth Ferguson Planetarium provides students and visitors with viewings of stars, constellations, nebulae, galaxies, planets, and much more, all on one 24-foot diameter dome. Located in the Science Building, this 70-seat planetarium offers seasonal shows that are open to the campus community and the general public.
