Transcript 1966 Bob Allison examines a reading on a machine in his chemical engineering class. This instrument, which seemed so high-tech at the time, was hopelessly outdated a few years later. btuoent JLiie 1953 Students learn how to use a brand- new television camera. All through the years, the University was committed to providing its students with the best equipment possible. i— . - ; mm 1979 A group of business students in the library studies together for a test. Study groups were a tried and true way to prepare for midterms, finals, and other exams. 1991 A student enjoys a shish kabob as she takes a break from studying for her classes. Food was, and always has been, an integral part of the studying experience. Some things never change. Classes were still hard, often harder, than they were when the school was first founded. Some professors still had zany idiosyncracies that drove students crazy. Everyone spent too much time doing homework, and not enough time having fun. The collegiate experience was all about learning, however. The first academic building for the University of Houston was the Roy G. Cullen Memorial Building, erected in 1927. Shortly after that, the Science Building was added. Others followed as the school grew larger and more diverse, offering a greater choice of majors and ever-harder classes. The faculty grew along with the students, making for a comfortable, friendly learning environment for everyone. During the fifties and sixties, the university really began to grow, as numerous buildings including University Center, Hoffman Hall, and Science and Research were added to the campus, vastly expanding the number of classes and the number of students on campus. The university added programs for engineering and music majors, and expanded its liberal arts program. As the oil boom took off during the 1980 s, the university was recognized amongst the leaders in the nation as a science, research, and engineering school. Architecture was added as a major, and the beautiful new Architecture Building was erected to house the new school. As the twentieth century drew to a close, campus enrollment exceeded 33,000 students, not to mention a premier faculty with big names like Paul Chu, a pioneer of superconducting materials, Edward Albee, who wrote "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolfe?" and Michael Economides, a world- renowned petrochemical engineer. Our school lived up to its motto during the first few years of the new century: learning and leading. Matthew E. Caster Acacleniics Nostalgia VI1
