UW-Eau Claire College of Business - 40 years of Excellence Snapshots

Schneider Hall

Schneider Hall Open for Business

In Fall 1967, the School of Business moved from Schofield Hall into offices and classrooms in the new John S. Schneider Social Science Hall.

Schneider Hall was only one of a number of major campus projects constructed in a three-year period at a total cost of $24 million. Other projects included the School of Nursing building, Towers Hall dormitory, the Fine Arts building, McPhee Physical Education Center, and the footbridge across the Chippewa River.
