Throckmorton Plant Sciences Center
Several academic departments are in Throckmorton Plant Sciences Center, including Merrill Hall, agronomy and plant pathology. The largest building on campus, Throckmorton provides classrooms, laboratories and greenhouses.
Also known as Throckmorton Hall, this building replaced the outdated facilities in Waters Hall and expanded research facilities for many departments. The first phase of Throckmorton was completed in 1981 for a cost of $9.2 million, and a second phase followed in 1994. The building name honors R.I. Throckmorton, dean of agriculture from 1947 to 1951.
