Administration Building

Administration Building 1

The four-story brick building was constructed in the Tudor Gothic or Collegiate Gothic style and opened Oct. 3, 1910, overcoming shifting legislation and appropriations that protracted the building’s construction for three years. With its limestone and terra cotta accents, the building stood as the campus’ sole academic building until 1959.

The building survived tornado damage in 1919 and a devastating fire in 1979 that erased its north wing theater. In 2010, the building was added to the National Register of Historic Places and it stands today as an iconic symbol of the University’s perseverance and strength.
