Transcript The massive Science and Research Center, left, will soon be the largest building on campus. An architect's sample of the twin tower dormitory's exterior stands alone on the intramural field, below left. Next fall UH will have its own dome, an observatory atop the Science and Research Center, right. Below, construction continues on the Bates College of Law while the $1.6 million Student Life Building, below right, nears completion. Perimeters Widen as Campus Structures Take Shape Last year the campus was a maze of unwanted detours. Students trudged across portable walks and muddy paths as more construction sites were readied to meet the university's expansion schedule. Ground was broken for several proposed buildings to accommodate campus growth and student demand for more spacious and modern facilities. Construction on the twin tower campus dormitory complex, due to open in the fall of 1969, was begun last spring. 72 The Science and Research Center, to be completed by September 1968, will be the largest and most expensive building on campus, costing over seven million dollars. A 12-inch telescope will be one of the building's distinguishing features. The Student Life Building will be a $1.6 million complex, housing the deans of student life, the Alumni Federation, Loans and Scholarships, Placement and Health Centers. An underground legal research library will be part of the three building Bates College of Law project. The other two buildings will be for administration and classrooms. At last basketball fans can say goodbye to the cramping facilities of Del- mar Fieldhouse. By December, 1968, the university will open the doors of its own athletic complex capable of seating 12,000. 73
