Tour of the College

Where Are We?

The College is located on 4 floors in the north and west sections of the Thorvaldson Building, which was named after the Dr. Thorburger Thorvaldson, Professor and Head of the Department of Chemistry, first Dean of Graduate Studies and the scientist whose work extended the life of structures made from concrete one hundred fold!

Entrance to Thorvaldson

Come through the beautiful old main gothic doorways erected in 1923, the 1966 addition, any of the side doors or the two pedestrian "links" - one with the Arts Building and the other with the Geology/Biology/Physics complex.

Reception in the College Office (116 Thorvaldson)

Welcome to our office and reception area where future students can obtain application forms and brochures about our programs and current students can pick up materials about their courses, obtain lockers, book meeting rooms, etc., and speak to our friendly staff.

Faculty Offices

Classrooms and Labs

Many of the Pharmacy and Nutrition classes are held in Thorvaldson but some are scheduled in adjacent buildings. There are advanced nutrition, foods and pharmaceutical sciences labs. Many of our "labs" extend outside of the building and into the excellent healthcare and related agencies in the community that provide the structured professional practice experiences for our students.
