The biology department is located in Cooper Life Science Building. The building is named for Robert H. Cooper, a former professor of biology and coordinator of science and mathematics.

We also use the Field Studies and Environmental Education Center extensively in our programs. The FSEEC includes such properties as Christy Woods, the Cooper/Skinner Farm, Ginn Woods, the Donald E. Miller Wildlife area, the Hults Environmental Learning Center, the Wheeler-Thanhauser Orchid Collection and Species Bank, and the Teaching and Research Greenhouse.
