The Department of Mathematics and Statistics is housed in University Hall, which was built in the Collegiate Gothic style and completed in 1931 at a cost of $2,000,000 dollars. University Hall was designed by the architectural firm of Mills, Rhines, Bellman and Nordhoff, Inc. 400 workers took 11 months and used 50,000 tons of limestone to complete the 63 foot tall building and its 205 foot tower!
