Transcript UNIVERSITY OF HOUSTON To cultivate within individuals a better understanding of the richness of our physical, social and spiritual inheritance, to the end that more intelligent leadership and cooperative effort may benefit the community, is one of the central purposes of the University of Houston, as stated in its charter. The University had its beginnings in 1927, when the Houston Junior College was established. With an enrollment of 100 students, the junior college met in the San Jacinto High School. Expansion to meet the needs of the thriving Gulf Coast area has been the rule since 1934, when facilites were broadened to accommodate a four- year program. Since its first year as a four-year school, the University has seen an enrollment increase of nearly ten-fold. Among its 1956 student body are representatives from almost every country in the world. Bachelors and Masters degrees are offered in most fields. Ph.D.s are offered by the Department of Psychology and Ed.D.s by the College of Education. A large percentage of the students work. To assist in job hunting either before or after graduation, the University maintains a placement center free of charge to its students. There is also an office of loans and scholarships which provides financial help to deserving students. There are 17 permanent buildings on the main campus. Architecture is a blend of modern, stylized and classical types featuring sand-colored Texas limestone. Newer buildings are constructed of blending brick, steel and glass materials. Four air-conditioned dormitories cluster around Oberholtzer hall, a combined guest house and recreation center housing two large cafeterias and a snack bar. This building was named for the school's president emeritus, the late Dr. E. E. Oberholtzer. More than 100 religious, professional and social clubs, sororities and fraternities offer students opportunity for extra-curricular activities. The past few years have been marked by a number of improvements for the well-being of the school's nearly 14,000 students, a total which gives it claim to the title of second largest educational institution in the state. Foremost personnel change in recent years was the addition of Lt. Gen. A. D. Bruce as president. Former commandant of the Armed Forces Staff College at Norfolk, Virginia, he holds the Army's top academic honors as well as a BS degree and an honorary doctorate from Texas A & M. Accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools is typical of the advances that have marked the University's rise to its present respected position. Notable in 1955 were accreditation of the Chemistry Department by the American Chemical Society, the gift to the University by the Ford Foundation of #644,000, and the University's election to membership in the American Association of Colleges.
