Segerstrom @ 10

Segerstrom Science Center was opened on September 3, 2009. As the most fiscally significant undertaking in Azusa Pacific University's history, Segerstrom Science Center—a 72,000-square-foot, three-story Leed Gold facility—has served countless students, scholars, and visitors over the last decade. Apart from promoting science and advancing Christian higher education in Southern California and beyond, numerous accomplishments have been made possible through this iconic building. To celebrate its 10th anniversary in September 2019, a series of events have been planned (see monthly schedule below)—and we hope you can join us!

For more information about any of the events, contact the Center for Research in Science at cris@apu.edu or (626) 815-6480.
