Science Hall was built in three stages. The first stage was the south wing, pictured above, which was erected in 1901 at a cost of $25,000. The second and third stages were built in 1918 and 1930. In June 1951, Science Hall was rededicated and named Minard Hall in honor of Dean A. E. Minard, who served the school for 46 years and authored the College hymn. Minard Hall is still in use.
