For the past several years, Weber State University has been petitioning the State for funds to build a new science building. I had an opportunity to tour the facility back and I felt the urgency that they did in the matter. The current science building I feel was used as the inspiration for the popular video game Half Life.
The current building is in a very sad state of repair. Its windowless corridors are also depressing. You can read more about that here.
Fortunately, this past Legislative Session, the new Tracy Hall was funded and we had an opportunity to participate in the ground breaking.

WSU President Charles Wight has to be one of the most interesting persons in his line of work. Here he is demonstrating the high explosive reaction of hydrogen and oxygen to the audience of dignitaries:
WSU's science and engineering programs are growing. We look forward to the benefits our community will receive from educating even more students in important sciences.
