Strosacker Science Center was opened in 1967 and named after Dr. Charles Strosacker, a chemist at Dow Chemical Company who invented Saran Wrap and gained thirty-four patents during his career.

The building provided a modern new home for the sciences, which had previously been housed in Knowlton Hall, built in the 1870s. A three-story addition and renovation in 2008 added 17,200 square feet to accommodate the growing programs of the Lee and Roland Witte Natural Sciences Division.
