Originally constructed as Hygeia Hall in 1936, what is now the Institutional Development building at T.W.U. was constructed with federal Public Works Administration (P.W.A.) funds. The cost of construction was approximately $40,000. Hygeia Hall served as the “student health center and the infirmary. Students were generally admitted when their illness was deemed contagious enough that quarantine was needed.”
