Like many American institutions, UMass experienced significant growth in programs and enrollment in the post World War II period; campus enrollment nearly doubled from 2,400 to 4,700 students. In 1947, the Massachusetts State College became the University of Massachusetts. Major new academic buildings include Morrill, Hasbrouck, Marston, Machmer, Totman, Chenoweth and Goessman Halls. The Student Union, Lincoln Apartments, Central and North Residences were also built during this period.
