Strand Agriculture Hall


126 Strand Agriculture Hall, Corvallis, Oregon

Strand Agricultural Hall is a sprawling building sitting between the two campus quads. This Italian Renaissance style building is actually comprised of three buildings – totaling 115,991 square feet! The wings on the north and south sides are each three-stories, while the central building, designed by Portland architect John Bennes, is four-stories with a fifth-floor penthouse. It was named for August L. Strand in 1984, OSU's president from 1942 to 1961.
