The second Young Hall replaced Young Memorial Science Hall, and gave the college its first modern science facility in over sixty years. A $373,784 grant from the U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare hekped fund construction of the building. Originally housing the life and physical sciences, the new building was located directly in front of the first Young Hall. The floor plan called for laboratories not grouped according to discipline, as was normally done, but by level of sophistication. Freshmen and sophomore labs were on the first floor, and advanced labs on the second.
In the fall of 2010 a two-story addition was completed that added 40,000 square feet to the building, with the older part of the structure to be renovated during the 2010-2011 year. The renovated and expanded Young Hall houses the psychology, psychobiology, biology and biochemistry and molecular biology programs, as well as the synthetic (organic and inorganic) chemists.
