Education Hall


104 Joyce Collin Furman Hall, 200 SW 15th St, Corvallis, Oregon

Following the tradition of morphing building names, Education Hall debuted as Agriculture Hall (1902), changed to Science Hall within the first decade, earned the nickname “Chem Shack” early on, and settled on its present moniker in February of 1940. Over the past century, many subjects have been taught under Education Hall’s gabled roof, including agriculture, science, pharmacy, forestry, psychology, and since 1940, education.
