Fifty-four new buildings have sprung up on the desert of 1891 to fill the entire area inside the volcanic rock walls which mark its original boundary. Although the buildings went up one by one throughout the first half of this century, all harmoniously conform to the warm red-brick style with red tile roofs. Like a refreshing oasis set into a residential area of the Old Pueblo and the nearby desert, the campus is colorful with cool green lawns and bright flowers as brilliant sunshine bathes the red buildings. Attractive drives, lined with palm and olive trees and evergreens, curve around Gld Main's island and border the lawns. Desert asis Among the Univer-sity's latest additions are the Liberal Arts Building, which opened its doors in 1950, and the Business and Public Administration Building, which was completed in 1952. In the heart of the campus stands the million-dollar Student Union, which is Arizonais tribute to its sons who were killed in WO1'ld War II. The bell in the Student Union tower was taken from the USS Arizona, which was sunk at Pearl Harbor. The ringing bell salutes athletic victories over out-of-state teams. After completion of Coconino Hall, the new wom- en's dormitory on Olive Road, attention turned toward plans for the modern Fine Arts Building to be built next door. Further expansion is planned to accommo- date the growing enrollment of 5,750.

Builds Around ld Main of 1891 The University Bill, locating a state university in Tucson, was passed in 1885. C. C. Stevens, jacob Samuel Mansfeld and Seliin M. Franklin were instrumental in passing the bill, although many Tucsonans wanted the state capital or the insane asylum located here instead. Three gamblers, two of whom were saloon keepers, were persuaded to give forty acres of land for the University site. Ground was broken that year for Old Main. Two years later the building stood uncompleted, no money was available. Federal funds were received in 1890, and the construction was finished. A faculty of six and a student body of thirty-two comprised the University when it opened on October- 1, 1891. Only foiu' of the thirty-two students were actually in the college department, the remaining twenty-eight were enrolled in the preparatoiy department. Growth was slow until 1910. The 'twenties saw much expansion in all phases of the University. Four new major buildings were added during that decade, and ten buildings were constructed during the 1980,s. After 1940, growth was phenomenal, and since that time enrollment and growth has been on a steady upward climb. TREES and flowers in abundance add shade, color and beauty to the campus all year -round, as in this walk to the Auditorium.
