As part of the ceremony, students, faculty, staff and friends of the University will be able to sign the steel beam that will complete the topping-out.

The signing will take place between 11 a.m. and noon, with light refreshments available.

At noon, there will be a brief program before the beam is raised and put in place.

The $50 million building is slated to open in 2020. The 90,000-square-foot, three-story building is being built on the southern edge of Tegeler Field, just east of Ritter Hall.

It is intended to be a showcase facility where faculty, undergraduates and graduate students can come together to learn, experiment and innovatively collaborate in advanced and flexible lab and classroom spaces.
