Building History


Magruder Hall, home to OSU's Carlson College of Veterinary Medicine, was built in 1979. In 2004, the Small Animal Hospital Addition was completed, which added a two story hospital wing. College of Veterinary Medicine, which in addition to educating future veterinarians, also provides assistance to current practitioners, animal owners and the public through a diagnostic laboratory, a teaching hospital and extension programs. It also features a 30,000 square-foot small-animal hospital. This building is named for state representative Richard B. Magruder, who was instrumental with getting the college established and securing the funding for the building.
