Some people think of a college as a group of buildings, Others see a place where people
work, play, and leam, together. Webster would call it an institution of higher leaming. In
all these respects our college has grown since the class of l950 came to Oswego .... To
the freshmen of l946 our college meant two buildings-one general elementary and one
industrial arts. At that time, flve hundred students walked its campus. Athletics and fra-
temities had iust been reactivated after the war years. The lodge on the lakeshore was
being completed and the trees behind the l. A. building were giving way to Splinter
Village. The auditorium resembled a hall in that it had no permanent seats or curtains.
A new cafeteria, dormitories, and a men's gym were merely plans for the future .... In the
past four years, the campus has expanded in all directions. Intensive construction has
become the scene. First, all the temporary buildings, at present the new dormitories across
Sheldon Avenue and the annex to the Industrial Arts Building, in the future, a new gym-
nasium and elementary school .... Oswego State has grown in more than physical facili-
ties. The curriculum and activities have been widened. Two years ago the college was
authorized to grant the master's degree. The class of l950 will be the Hrst general ele-
mentary class to receive the degree of Bachelor of Science in Education .... We at Oswego
are living parts of a momentum started by our institution's founder, Dr. Sheldon. Our
achievements were not easy. These accomplishments were struggles-long laborious
struggles. We have a history we can be proud of. With this in mind we can only expect
improvements and progress in the direction of higher standards. We must strive to main-
tain our heritage.
