Scott held College Building in high regard
"The buildings of the University [President Murray began] were formerly opened by the Hon. Walter Scott on the first day of May, 1913. To Mr. Scott came the rare opportunity of dignifying the life of a province by the erection of worthy public buildings. The Legislative Buildings at Regina and the University buildings at Saskatoon will for generations stand as a memorial of the hopes and ambitions of the pioneers of the youngest province of the Dominion.
"With these memorable words, Premier Scott began his address at the Opening:
'We are met here to mark the completion and opening...of Saskatchewan's Provincial University and Agricultural College [i.e., College Building]. Next to the Legislature of the province itself this seat of higher learning is the most important institution that Saskatchewan will ever possess - and I am by no means sure that a state University...is second in importance to the Legislature of that state, because upon the work of the University during the twentieth century will depend in great measure...the character of the Legislature which will be representing the province, and the character of the government which the people of the province will be carrying on for them selves at the end of the century. The importance of the institution needs no emphasis.'"
