Then compris- ing the entire College campus, Cowles has an illustrious history as everything from classroom and faculty and administrative oflice to a home for the student body. Cowles is now the home of the freshman class. Administrative olhces and Fassett Com- mons make up the first floor. The Cowle Bin, a coffee shop, is in the basement, and the college Infirmary is on the fourth floor. One of Elmira's ivy-covered dormitories, Alumnae Hall, provides living quarters for the overflow of freshmen who cannot be housed in Cowles Hall. On either side of the large and attractive lounge and on the three upper floors, students enjoy sizeable rooms equipped for their comfort. .!4!lfLlWLl'L6L8 -W , ff' .H--A ,f-fucpc I' E PQIQCA A 0111158 La Maison Francaise, a new addition in Elmira's program of intellectual expansion, was established in September, 1958 to aid students in speaking fluent French and in acquainting them with French culture. The students living in French House are ex- pected to speak French at all times. Coffee hours held each Sunday provide students with an op- portunity to understand different aspects of French civilization. The basement portion of Alumnae Hall houses the ten offices of the Department of So- cial Studies. The college newspaper, The Octa- gon, has its oflice in the basement of Alumnae. Students find pleasure in the large recreation room, which is located in the basement. vain ,glfreef ibormiforg Elmira's newest dormitory is located adjacent to Gillette and Carnegie Halls. As yet unnamed, it is referred to by the students as the Main Street Dormitory. Although inhabited by members of freshman, sophomore and junior classes, the bulk of the students living in the dorm are juniors. This building, housing students for the Hrst time this year, provides bright, cheerful living quarters. The lounge offers something new with its conservative, modern Oriental motif. N7 omyo ind As the traditional senior dormitory, Tompkins is ideal. With big, comforta- ble rooms for its occupants, this thirty- four year old building is still preferred. QPF? Ad! Inhabited for the first time in September of 1957, Perry Hall is another of the new buildings on Elmira's campus. Adjoining Tompkins Hall, this dormitory not only offers comfortable and pleasant living quar- ters for its sophomore students, but also adds rapport between the sister classes, the sopho- mores and seniors. Equipped with an attractive lounge, date room and an adequate recreation room, Perry Hall is greatly in demand as living quarters for Elmira College's sophomore students. ,f u - 4 CML? Agaffmgnfa The college apartments are a series of attrac- tive structures which house many of the Elmira College faculty and their families. Recently built, these apartments abound in modern conveniences for the comfort of the col- lege staff. amigfon oowe Located next to the col- lege library, H a m i 1 t o n House affords spacious liv- ing quarters for some of the Elmira College faculty. A rich, historical back- ground can be found be- neath the walls of this tra- ditional looking edifice. Qfiffe AM The problem of housing faculty ofhces is solved by Gillette Hall. The bulk ol offices can be found in this building. ' Used many years ago as a college dormitory, Gil- lette is now a means for student-faculty conferences and meetings as well as a working place for professors. Conveniently located at the rear of Cowles Hall, Gillette is a place much-frequented by Elmira College students in search of academic help and intellectual companionship. 9 l2ff11f6LLli5l7l1l -Eigalfll? Aid grilling Opened in September of 1958, the Watson Fine Arts Building is a welcome addition to Elmira's campus. The First floor of this structure houses the music department. Practice rooms and music studios are available for student use. A large art gallery is located at the entrance. The second Hoor is employed by the Speech and Language Departments. Fully-equipped language laboratories afford great advantages for students. The third Hoor consists of WECW, Elmira Co11ege's new FM radio station. arnegie Soon to be supplemented by a new building, Carnegie Hall is at present Elmira's only science building. The first two floors of Carnegie consist of classrooms and laboratories. N . I ,f sunrise: llnsga IEE!! llhlfa ."l EEE unset: nnnzli ig' ,, 393-Sigur -,- F' li Q, JM The third floor of Carnegie is devoted to classrooms for students taking secre- tarial studies. Here, students find modern facilities available for their use in their secretarial endeavors. owrid ,Auf joined by an arch to the Watson Building, Harris Hall is the principal classroom structure on the Elmira College campus. Its two floors consist of classrooms where lec- tures and advanced seminars are held. Classes from the Department of the Division of Community Education meet in Harris Hall in the evenings. Named after Anstice Harris, long-time resi- dent of Elmira and one-time Dean of Elmira College, Harris Hall is a well-equipped and at- tractive building. memon .xyclfiuifiw ffgfaifcbng The first building erected as a part of the Centen- nial Development Program, the Emerson Activities Building is an up-to-date edifice providing facilities for diversified activities. The lovely and massive Kolker Lounge is equipped with a hi-H set for student pleasure. It is also the scene of many meetings and teas. The acoustically-modern auditorium serves a multi- tude of purposes, ranging from classes to dramatic pre- sentations. The Emerson Building is equipped with a spacious gymnasium, swimming pool and dance studio. 12 f O52 Pdf? The library is the place for many activities and groups. The rooms offer a wealth of information for research and they offer privacy and quiet for studying. The Browsing Room exudes a relaxed atmosphere, and is supplied with magazines, literary periodicals and novels of all kinds. The books in the Elmira College Library are ar- ranged topically according to rooms. These rooms are large and built with student comfort in mind. A desire for knowledge and the enjoyment of a quiet, pleasant atmosphere are the prerequisites to the enjoyment of the library. 13 Quality, the essence of education, has been estab- lished on the Elmira College campus. Two successful programs have been launched-the four course cur- riculum and facility development. The aim of the newly innovated curriculum is in- tellectual and cultural literacy for every student. The second century of Elmira College will afford a very high educational experience to everyone through the processes of creative and analytical thinking, with ad- ditional time for independent study. This will make the educational experience more nearly a do-it-your- self process. The new curriculum has been augmented by an adept and outstanding faculty. Growth and Elmira College are synonymous. The college building program allows for a broadened pro- gram and for future physical growth. The Emerson Activities Building was completed in June of 1956. The Watsoxi Fine Arts Building is an immeasurable contribution to the college program. Three new dor- mitories have been erected to carry the load of in- creased enrollment. Plans for administration and sci- ence buildings are on architects' desks. The second century of Elmira College will be one of marked pro- gress. 14 WWW , v W ' DI' mv A , 'W A1 " Y 'sw ' , ,WJ 'JA' w :, www W A ,, H3 ,- W' ' , N' 7 A 1 K N M' 1 Wg.

Northrup Assistant Professor of Instructor in Secretarial Studies Pfofff-UO" 0fEflwffm0f1 Secretarial Studies Lawton of 10,068 .Aid an egbtences As Chairman of the Division of Applied Arts and Sciences, Dr. Grant Northrup has done much this year to broaden the scope of the division which in- cludes educational studies, secretarial studies, home management and remedial reading. Furnishing hypothetical apartments and studying basic diets and food preparation provides practical experience for senior students. Students studying secretarial skills are aided by practice laboratories and actual experience gained from working in downtown Elmira offices. The Education Department has reconstructed its entire program for students with a concentration in elementary education, with the result that these stu- dents are now awarded permanent teaching certifi- cates for New York State upon graduation.

Miss Catherine H. Finter serves as Chairman of the Department of Physical Education and Recreation. This department includes fencing, dance, swimming, tennis, hockey, volleyball, bowling and archery. Freshmen and sophomore students are required to participate in some of the activities offered by this de- partment. The Department of reation has broadened its scope with the field work plan. This means that a student may fulfill some of her physical education requirements by working with a social agency in the city, if she chooses. This plan is being furthered and has thus far proved rewarding. Physical Education and Rec- iuision of fyfigsicaf glcfncalfion an Kaliope Candianides George P.

Guardians of our class they'lI be, Our Patron Saints. They'll guide us at Elmira Through our four years. They'll make our lives a rainbow, And calm our fears. Both of us are new this year, We need each other. To reach our pot of gold, We'll Work together. So we will wait no longer, Here are our Patron Saints: They're Dr. and Mrs. Applegate! Melody: I'll Be Seeing You To our Patron Saints For all the gracious things you've done For all the laughter and the fun, We sing to you. Now it will be told We've reached that Pot of Gold, But how could we go wrong With you to guide us all along? Everlasting friends Although these years must end, Although the road must bend, Our thoughts will always tend To lind you in our memories No matter what we dog We'll be looking through the yea And we'll be seeing you. TS Barbara Bailey, Treasurer: Sally Moulton, President: Ann Kessler, Vice-Presidentg Penny Kaiser, Secretary. 1956-The year of the "birth of the Class of 1960 .... 180-odd, the fresh-faced freshmen con- verged on Elmira College clutching such be- loved keepsakes as stuffed animals and boy- friends, and being clutched by harassed parents. . . . We eyed each other warily .... "She's pin- ned!!" Life settled down to the routine dictated by the Octagons, and Annie was ceremoniously inaugurated to lead the Frosh .... Buddy Night arrived with the front-line struggle at the mail- boxes .... At last we belonged to someone .... Uniformity was momentarily achieved with our proud march sporting new camel blazers .... Winter came and sub-zero winds blew .... So did the fuses .... Our Winter Weekend offering, so slaved over, was conceived between frenzied vis- its to the Senate Room .... The Applegates were chosen to be our "parents" for the next four yearsg it was a wonderfully accurate choice .... Every event, every defeat, drew us closer to one- ness .... As spring approached, spring fever ran rampant .... Half-clad sunbathers were uncere- moniously evicted from Cowles roof at high noon .... Merry Canters came, and the expres- sion, "She's College" became immortal. . . . So did the expression, "We lost again .... " With the end of final exams, our freshman year be- came a part of historyg a class history .... And so, we eagerly rushed home. September 1957 saw the return of our class, now worldly and wise .... We knew our way around, and let everyone else know it, too .... Those first nights at dinner, the new freshman class sang as it never had before-and never has since .... We ruled the world, but our world consisted of a very private domain that was the brand-new Perry Hall .... Buddy Night came again, but this time the tables were turned .... We created impossible clues, sent maddening verses, bought ingenious gifts, and watched al- most maternally, as our Little Buddies strug- gled .... Christmas Vacation came and so did budding romances .... We fed Mrs. Popp's ul- cers with such pranks as "roof prowlers" in the dead of night .... In spite of our unity, this was our year of battle .... Father-Daughter Weekend dulled the pain of our Merry Chanters loss .... May brought Mock May Day and May Day .... Yammy's radiance as Chief Sitting Bull was sec- ond only to that of our lovely queen, Carol Mc- Kinnie .... We said good-bye to our two-year students and went home for another summer. The "long, long while from May to Septem- ber" passed swiftly and we returned, now genu- ine upperclassmen . . . and Big Sisters. . . . As ambassadors of good will, we tried our best to make a good first impression for the new fresh- men .... Our number was reduced even more by the group of students studying abroad .... Dia- mond rings began appearing frequently as winter wore on and Valentine's day approached .... It was a proud feeling to see our own Pam in the black robe of Student Government President in the spring of that year .... Our feelings of "get- ting old" increased as we became mere spectators at the May Day ceremonies, but we were still "young at heart," which was made clear in such events as the midnight pilfering of the senior Flamin' Mamie elligy .... And another year was over. The Finale of the winning senior skit, "Medium Rare." September '59 saw our return as Seniors .... This has been our star-studded year, and one studded with tears .... Our Senior Vlfeekend will linger in our hearts as a moving salute to our four years at Elmira .... The Senior Mixers will go down in history as a comedy-or a tragedy-of errors .... The word "apathy" has been non- existent as far as the Seniors are concerned, and "togetherness" has become synonymous with our class .... Our winnings have been big and worth waiting for .... Winter Weekend belonged to us this year .... We devoted the spring months to job interviews and plans for the Bonfire, Senior Day, and Graduation-with a few hurried prayers that we'd make it. From the great unshaped mass of humanity that we were four short years ago, we have emerged as intelligent, clear-thinking young women. Our plans are varied, our goals diverse, but in a few things, at least, we think uniformly. We love our class and all that it has achieved. Perhaps most of all, however, we love Elmira College and what it has given us. As we go on through the years to come, many of us will grow apart, but the unity that personilies the Class of 1960 will always point as a beacon to our class and to our school, the school that has made us the future.

To some of us, the coming year would bring the thrill of being called "upperclassmen." To others, the coming year would offer challenges in the business world and, to some, op- portunities for special training in their selected fields. We lost many girls that year to business careers, to the nursing profession, and to that ever-popular domain-the white cottage with a rose-covered picket fence. They have scattered as the autumn leaves, but are not forgotten. Yes- these girls are still with us in spirit, and this spirit shall always remain with the Class of 1960. t Y 's':.

The Juniors were the first to arrive on campus in September. They spent the week before classes began escorting their Little Sisters to teas, parties, meetings, and generally orienting them to the Elmira atmos- phere. Nancy Greenberg served as Chairman of the Freshmen until they elected their own class president. Led by the Juniors, Elmira took time out for a "Ba- varian Holiday" in November, and members of all classes enjoyed a unique and entertaining junior Prom Weekend. Elmira sweatshirts of all colors dotted the campus as a result of the Juniors' business endeavor. Mr. and Mrs. Louis J. Junker and their children, Nanette, Louis and jamie. In the fall of 1959, the Junior Class chose Dr. and Mrs. Louis Junker to serve as their Patron Saints. The junkers replaced Dr. and Mrs. Henry Tobias, who left Elmira College to teach in New Mexico. The Junkers,and their three children entertained the class in their home and were hosts at a picnic in May. 81 1fufz,i0rA With the arrival of sub-freshmen on campus in February, the Juniors spent the weekend answering a myriad of ques- tions and touring parts of the campus even they had forgotten existed. The favorite dates of the year, our dads, honored the Juniors at Father- Daughter Weekend in April. The class shone on the stage at Merry Chanters, but the dads out-danced, out-played, and out-sang everyone the rest of the week- end. As the Class of '61 watched the Seniors on Graduation Day, they were filled with a deep sense of responsibility, knowing that they soon would be Seniors. Row 1: R. Garlinkel, K. Rogers, A.
