The construction of Farr-Chinnock Hall marked a significant period in University history in which new construction created space for a specific academic discipline: science. This building gave students the opportunity to study the sciences with access to updated laboratories. Faculty were also given additional office space. Classes in physics, natural sciences, and chemistry were included in course offerings when it was completed in 1951.
