Science and Engineering Offices

SEO scissor staircaseScience and Engineering Offices, 13 stories in height, opened for use in 1968, when Morgan Street was the westernmost campus boundary. The two sections of the building, slightly off-set from one another, contain matching concrete-framed scissor staircases, visible from the building exterior. Science and Engineering Offices granite signAgain, narrow recessed windows on the building signal the work of Walter Netsch.

A large engraved block of granite bearing the name Science and Engineering Offices identifies the building on both the north and south sides. Today a black wrought iron fence has replaced the brick wall that surrounded the historic Netsch campus.
