Yeshiva University to Dedicate $20 Million Science Center

A $20 million, 20 story science center will be dedicated by Yeshiva University in upper Manhattan on Nov. 1 for its Belfer Graduate School of Science. Dr. Samuel Belkin, president of the University, said the new center was a milestone in the development of the Belfer school which is an outgrowth of Yeshiva University’s Institute of Mathematics established in 1947. The new structure, with an area of 250,000 square feet, will contain nine floors of laboratories, a two-story, 50,000 volume library and a computer center housing an IBM 1130 computer tied in to Columbia University’s 360-90 series unit. It will also contain two theater type lecture halls, a kitchen, dining room and faculty lounge. The new center will accommodate 300 students.
