Biographical / Historical
In 1967, all of Smith’s science departments were brought together in the Clark Science Center, a series of buildings that includes McConnell Hall. By 2005, McConnell, which houses the center’s busiest classrooms and auditorium as well as the computer science, physics and astronomy departments, was due for renovation. With those modifications, McConnell now features new state-of-the-art classrooms equipped with audio-visual upgrades, including Internet projection capabilities, improved lighting systems and versatile teaching spaces. The refurbished auditorium accommodates 95 people with moveable furniture that can be adapted for different presentations and lectures. Equally important are the updates to the building’s airflow systems, and renovations of its basement and first-floor classrooms and labs, as well as the machine shop.
