About this Print

The standard framed size of this print is 15-by-20 inches.
Larger versions of this print do not include framing.

In 1935, during commencement exercises, the cornerstone was laid for what was then called The Teaching and Administrative Building. Housing a 3,003 seat auditorium, this structure was completed in time for commencement in June 1936. Construction, taking place during the Great Depression, was partially financed by a grant/loan from the federal Public Works Administration. The grey stone or “Hokie” stone which so characterizes this building and others on campus, is dolomite limestone mined in Montgomery County, Virginia. In 1944 Virginia Tech changed the name of the building to Burruss Hall to honor Julian A. Burruss, who served as their president from 1919-1945. An electronic carillon was installed in 1958. A west wing and rear addition were added in 1968. An east wing was constructed in 1970. Burruss Hall is a towering structure that overlooks the campus in an imposing setting. It has come to symbolize the Virginia Tech campus.

*Artist’s Note: If you are a HOKIE, I know you can find the “COKE BOTTLE” on top of Burruss Hall.
