bs - astronomy, Class of 1974

new architecture by a madman (edward durrell stone). all new facilities, but the architect blocked any modifications that would "mar" the appearance of his buildings. so no observatory dome and nothing but off-white paint until his contract was complete and he left. there was one computer lab to serve the whole faculty and student body (this was the early '70s - it was a univac 1107). there's really no comparison with today's computer facilities. classrooms, labs, dorms, and dining halls were new and spiffy.
