The Peter S. Trumbower Science Building
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.
