Over Minnie Creek?
Phillips Science Hall was in itself a scientific phenomenon. Built in a marsh, many were dubious about its durability. The early building presented problems of water filling the holes dug for the foundations. But these were soon overcome as the 2Va million dollar structure rose into a sleek.gently curving architectural triumph spanning Minnie Creek. Over the slippery tile entry rose slabs of white stone. Housed in the building were a planetarium, an observatory, a green house, offices, classrooms and labs. But even this mecca of science had its disadvantages. For example, only the first floor was air-conditioned and the roof seemed to have several leaks.
The passageway of Phillips Science Hall spanned Minnie Creek.

The pace was fast, and the air was full of excitement as Governor Knowles arrived on campus for the dedication of Phillips Science Hall. Occupied in the late fall of 1964. the well-equipped building was already crowded, and plans were being made for an addition. But the aura of the Golden Jubilee year hovered over the festivities. Tours through the building were made by students and faculty, friends and townspeople. Governor Knowles inspected the building and gave it his stamp of approval. New and up-to-date equipment filled the shiny labs. Here was a building that reflected the specialization that earmarked WSU-EC as a University. We had come a long way since the building of Schofield Hall which in 1916 housed the entire school.
A mouth watering array of foods tempted palates at the smorgasbord given to culminate the dedication of the Phillips Science Hall.
