The Schaible Science Center houses the Bates Observatory, complete with a telescope powerful enough to reveal “not just the rings of Saturn, but also the splits between the rings.” To schedule a visit, call (630) 617-3032.
In 1966, the College established a campus arboretum with approximately 65 varieties of trees and shrubs. Over the years, alumni, faculty and staff have contributed to the collection’s growth. Today, the campus is home to about 700 species. We welcome our alumni to personally visit the arboretum anytime or view highlights of the collection online.
