Narrative:
The majority of the campus's central classroom buildings were constructed during the 1940s and 1950s and were the first non-wood buildings constructed on campus. The construction is brick with Indiana limestone trim. Although the architectural style has not been documented, it is generally accepted that these buildings are examples of either a Prairie style or hybrid Prairie/Collegiate Gothic style.
