The Peter S. Trumbower Science Building by Olivia Salzman
The history of the Peter S. Trumbower science building embodies the liberal arts spirit that holds true today at Muhlenberg. As the college made a curricular shift from the classics to include the sciences, there was a genuine need for more space for science students. Serendipitously, the lecture hall became a popular space for Mask and Dagger Club students to practice and perform their theater productions. While the building was created as a powerhouse for one department, it became home to two of the most popular offerings—science and theater. The early example of dual functionality Trumbower illustrates the drive to cultivate innovative, well-rounded students.
