Completed in 1999, the Baker-Watt Science Complex includes the Watson Life Science Building, with facilities for Public Health and Computer Science, and Dana Science Laboratory, dedicated to the Physics Department.

Students and faculty research atomic physics, lasers and spectroscopy, artificial intelligence and virtual reality using some of the finest equipment available, offering cutting-edge research opportunities. The two buildings are connected by the Blanche Knox Parker Garden and covered walkways bridging the patio. 

Drs. Fran and Lenox Baker, Class of 1963, made the gift for the complex in honor of their fathers, Dr. Lenox Baker Sr. and Dr. James Watt, Class of 1931.
