Scenes from the Linus Pauling Science Center grand opening

We were there when ground was broken in September 2009.  Now, just over two years later, it was our great pleasure to attend the grand opening of the magnificent Linus Pauling Science Center, new home to the Linus Pauling Institute and to components of the Department of Chemistry. At 105,000 square feet, the Pauling Science Center is the largest academic building on the Oregon State University campus.  It is also the most expensive, costing $62.5 million to construct.

In addition to the video above, the Corvallis Gazette-Times did a great job of covering the opening (here’s one story focusing on the building and another on the event).  Below is a gallery of photographs that the blog took in documenting a memorable day.
