Since the Behrend Campus was
founded in 1948 the campus has
grown from a mere 152 students
to 1264 in 1970. Previously only
freshmen. and later freshmen
and sophomores, Behrend now
has become the first com
monwealth campus to go four
years by enrolling about 100
students as juniors this year.
To accommodate this growth,
the campus has completed a new
science building; the Nick
Building, just this year; and two
new buildings, a foods service
building and a dormitory, are
presently under construction.
They are to be completed in the
fall of 1971. These additionS would
allow an increased enrollment of

been approved by the state, but
because of the state's fiscal
difficulties. the money has yet to
The building projects are a new
library building north of the

administration building, a new
physical education facility south
of Erie Hall, and a new academic

estimated at $ll million.

new governor takes office, and
even then with the state's $4O
million project deficit, it may be
a while till anything is approved.
If and when the state does act, the
three buildings at Behrend are at
the top of the list and it is hopeful
that construction may begin so
that the buildings may be com
pleted by 1975.
Critics of Penn State believe
that the University is becoming a
"huge octopus" that is engulfing
the entire state. Authorities,
however, are quick to point out
that the University is only
striving to maintain the 12 per
cent -15 per cent of high school to
college bound students in Penn-
Sylvania, just as it has over the
past lb years.
There are many more plans in
