If you are not able to attend a guided tour, but would still like to tour the facilities, please stop into room 1112 in Hamerschlag Hall (during normal business hours, Monday through Friday) and ask for a prospective student folder. Inside the folder is a self-guided walking tour pamphlet which will guide you around the first floor of Hamerschlag Hall. You are also welcome to walk down to the A-level of the building, which contains some other labs.
