Title

Buildings - East Campus

Description

In 1966, the Area Ten Board selected a site one-half mile south of Highway 30 on Bowling Street for its new campus. The 315-acre site was purchased for $407,500 at an average cost of $1,300 per acre. In the summer of 1968 construction began on the "transitional campus". The erection of the buildings was completed in time for the start of classes Fall 1968 and housed the Arts and Sciences classes until a permanent building could be built. The new campus was constructed in the middle of a corn field, hence, the commonly referred to name, "the college in a cornfield", was originated.
