The entire Magruder expansion will funded with philanthropic gifts, college funds and tuition revenues. “This project will directly improve the educational experience of veterinary students by providing improved instructional space,” says Dean Susan J. Tornquist. “With this project, graduating veterinarians will have training in new and advanced treatment procedures, such as radiation oncology.”

Last fall, OSU approved an expansion plan for Magruder Hall that is currently in the design phase. Several groups have met with architects to address space needs, and help prioritize projects. At this point the plan is to add a 100-seat lecture hall, and two wings on the small animal hospital. Over the past four years, the hospital’s case load has increased 15 percent annually.
One hospital wing will house oncology, cardiology and internal medicine, freeing up space for the surgery service to expand. The other wing will house a linear accelerator for a new radiation oncology service.
