Also known as the Jerry and Debra Kramer Science Center.

The Kramer Science Center was originally designed by the architectural firm of Warren and Wetmore between 1902–1904. It was converted to science labs and renamed after its benefactors, Jerry and Debra Kramer, in 1992 by the architectural firm of Baldassano Associates.

With the completion of this building, Warren and Wetmore went on to design and work on the Grand Central Terminal in New York City.
