The mere presence of such a stunning building will demonstrate the importance of science education and research at Rollins. With this new facility we will attract and keep the most talented students and faculty; they are the ones who will have the greatest impact on the future of Rollins and the world.

Archibald Granville Bush
The redesign and expansion of the Archibald Granville Bush Science Center will reinforce the centrality of math and the sciences to a Rollins liberal arts education. The new design is intended to support and stimulate interdisciplinary study and to encourage bright and curious minds to engage in the great challenges of today for a better future.
Investing in Rollins’ Future
The most ambitious capital project in Rollins’ history creates opportunity and inspires generosity. Understanding the role of the Center in attracting the most capable and motivated students, and retaining and recruiting the best faculty, the Charles Rice family has challenged the Rollins community with a transformational lead gift of $5 million, a contribution contingent upon an additional $2.5 million from others who share a passion for Rollins and the sciences.
Along with the Charles E. Rice Hall and Atrium space, there are additional opportunities to name spaces within the Center, including teaching labs, classrooms and interactive areas. Investors are encouraged to learn about these and other gift opportunities by contacting Lisa Thomson, Associate Vice President for Development, at 407.646.2010 and visiting our major gift opportunities site.
21st Century Science
The Archibald Granville Bush Science Center positions Rollins to boost research and provide students with the most interactive and engaging learning experiences available. The Center’s new dynamic, interdisciplinary spaces adapt to the rapid pace of scientific discovery and emerging technology in the 21st century. View plans here:Site plan
