Morrill Hall

Morrill Hall 2018

Morrill Hall houses the Office of the President, Budget and Finance, Human Resources, Accounting, University Counsel and Doner Auditorium.

In 1911 the legislature appropriated $100,000 for the Agricultural and Administration building. At the time it was the largest amount ever allocated by a SD legislature. It funded construction of the middle and south wings. At the time of its construction, the building contained 7 classrooms, 42 offices, 24 laboratories, an auditorium, home economics kitchen, parlor, laundry, bulletin room, model drug store, music rooms, and a greenhouse. An additional $100,000 appropriation was needed in 1917 to complete and equip the building. The extension to the north was added in 1918. After the agricultural department gained additional facilities in 1925, the administration building served as home to the economics, art, and pharmacy programs as well as rooms for classes and a greenhouse. The architectural highlight of the building is the classically inspired front entrance with iconic order columns and a central decorative motif. It was renamed Morrill Hall in 2016.
