New Buildings and Extended Course Will Put University of Illinois School of Pharmacy in Front Rank
Pharmacists of the state will be interested in plans for the now building of the School of Pharmacy and for making use of I.lie building formerly occupied by the Institute for Juvenile Research which has lately been turned over to it. The University of Illinois owns the entire frontage on Wood Ml.reet between Flournoy and Polk street and extending back to the alley, with the exception of two lots on Polk street adjoining Mie alley. The frontage on Wood street is approximately 400 fnet and the depth of the lots is approximately 125 feet. On I his property there are now the two buildings occupied by the Hchool of Pharmacy and connected by a tower building which provides corridors at each floor, also the building now vacant, which was formerly occupied by the Institute for Juvenile ReMoarch and which has just been taken over by the School of Pharmacy. Adjoining these buildings is a vacant lot approximately 8Ox 125 feet in size and upon this lot will be erected the building provided for in the appropriation of $350,000 made by the legislature at its last session. The buildings the School now occupies provide six laboratories, two lecture halls and a recitation room as well as offices, locker room, etc. The old building, now taken over and which will be remodeled for the use of the School, will provide one lecture room, three recitation rooms and several offices and students' rooms. The new building, plans for which have now been completed and the work upon which will begin soon, will afford; five laboratories, one recitation room, and offices. The new build-! Ing will also provide a corridor extending from the present northj buildings to the remodeled Juvenile Research building, so that; the four buildings will then be connected by corridors on eacH floor and this in effect will make them into one. The student; capacity of the laboratories is based upon units of 72 for each: laboratory and the ten laboratories will thus give capacity for 7 20 students working at one time. It is expected that when the; Ihree-year course is fully established the enrollment will be approximately as follows: f^irst year . . . .'."\ 268 students Second year . . . . — . ., ..216. students; Third year 216 students 1 Total 700 students
