Naming Opportunities

Beyond the Rise: Elevating the Sciences at Roanoke College will complete the transformation of Roanoke physically and fundamentally—boldly setting the tone of our institution as forward-thinking.

The construction of our new Science Center requires an investment of $50 million, all of which must be secured before this transformational project can be completed.

Strong commitments from a number of generous funders have already helped us lay the groundwork for success. Now, we turn to the Maroon Family—our alumni, parents and friends—to request universal support to move this new complex from vision to reality.

There are more than 200 individual spaces and rooms in the Science Center that can be named for an alumnus/a, professor, student or loved one. These diverse spaces and rooms range from small student study spaces, classrooms and laboratories to the auditorium, roof garden and atrium.

Thank you for considering investing in Beyond the Rise—the exclamation point to 25 years of campus revitalization.
