Cal Poly breaks ground on Center for Science and Mathematics

Cal Poly is one step closer to getting a new science building.

The University broke ground on its new Center for Science and Mathematics Saturday.

It is a project 15 years in the making.

The 200,000 square foot, six-level building will be the second largest building on campus.

It will also cater to every Cal Poly student, regardless of their major.

"There are four outdoor terraces on it where they can study or talk or whatever they want, and the labs and classroom facilities are state of the art," said Phil Bailey, dean of the College of Science and Mathematics.

State bonds and private donations are funding the $132 million project.

It is scheduled to be ready for students in the fall of 2013.
