Center to further academic opportunities for BU students

Nov. 12, 1998

The Lariat reported today that fund raising for a Discovery Complex is well under way and is more than halfway toward reaching the $7-million mark before construction can begin.

The complex, which will be located adjacent to the Hughes-Dillard Alumni Center on University Parks Drive, will house the Strecker Museum and will provide opportunities for advancement of the Baylor museum studies program.

The complex will also feature a children's exhibit, continuing the tradition of the Ollie Mae Moen Discovery Center. This center will permit students in the School of Education and the psychology department to observe how people learn.

In addition to its benefit to Baylor students, the complex will also benefit the Waco community. By housing the Thomas E. and Emilyne W. Anding Exhibition Gallery, the complex will provide the Waco area with opportunities to view traveling exhibits.

Once again, we applaud the university's commitment to providing cutting-edge academic opportunities for its students and for providing educational opportunities for the city of Waco.
