Extant buildings constructed prior to 1960.

During the 1960‘s and 70‘s, there was a major building boom on campus. By 1967, campus enrollment was 15,000 students. Approximately six million square feet of space was built in these two decades, including numerous tall buildings (eight –twenty -two stories) that altered the scale and spatial organization of the campus.

New buildings during this period included Du Bois Library, Morill II, III, and IV, Lederle Graduate Research Center, Lincoln Campus Center, Southwest Residences, Fine Arts Center, North Village Apartments, Isenberg School of Management, and Bartlett, Furcolo, Holdsworth, Mahar Auditorium, Herter, Thompson, and Tobin Halls..
