TRIFFO HALL—Home to FGSR and the Graduate Students' Association

In 1915, the Department of Civil Engineering moved into their new home, the Single Laboratories Civil Engineering building—a.k.a. South Lab.

Over the next century, the structure witnessed both greatness and the effects of age, to finally return to prominence through the generosity of a $1 million donation from Ronald and Dorothy Triffo. The newly-minted and LEED award-winning structure was officially unveiled on April 15, 2008.
