About Science Center:

Swarthmore's science center was the first undergraduate science facility to receive the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification. It brings together biology, chemistry, computer science, mathematics and statistics, physics and astronomy, and the Cornell Science Library. The ground floor coffee bar is a popular campus hangout.
