Linus Pauling Science Center - A Moment to Celebrate

On October 14, 2011, donors and community members gathered to celebrate the grand opening of the Linus Pauling Science Center, a cornerstone project of The Campaign for OSU. Construction of this $62.5 million home of the Linus Pauling Institute and the Department of Chemistry was made possible through the generous support of the Wayne and Gladys Valley Foundation and the family of Al and Pat Reser, along with gifts from 2,600 additional donors and a matching bond from the State of Oregon.

The 105,000-square-foot teaching and research facility is named for OSU alumnus and two-time Nobel laureate Linus C. Pauling ’22, one of the greatest scientists of the 20th century.  It represents a working legacy: a place where Dr. Pauling’s lifelong pursuit of scientific knowledge and his commitment to improving the human condition will continue to move forward.
