I CamucUa T B he Indiana State Normal School opened its doors in 1875 and enrolled 225 students. John Sutton Hall, now registered as a national landmark, was the only building jpn campus and served all functions. The experi- mental spring semester was considered a suc- cess, and the school began to grow and develop. In 1927 Indiana State Teachers College emerged. With it came a new grading system, which used quality points and students needed to maintain a " C " average to stay in school. As the university grew, buildings were added to the campus and more niajors were added to the college. Also, in 1959 the school began a graduate studies program with an enrollment of 74 students. The school ' s name changed again in 1960 to Indiana State College which showed the expan- sion and movement to a multi-purpose college. Also during this time Dr. Willis Pratt, presi- dent, initiated a campus expansion plan which would add 30 new buildings to campus within the nfixt ten years. In 1962, the Punxsutawney branch campus was founded and the Kittanning campus follwed in 1963. Then, in 1964, work began by Indiana administration and Sen. Al- bert R. Pechan to promote Indiana State College to a university. On January 25, 1 965 Sen. Pechan introduced Senate Bill 1; " An act providing for the estab- lishment and operation of the Western Pennsyl- vania State University, Indiana, Pennsylvania. " The bill was then referred to the Committee on Education, which visited the campus in the win- ter of 1 965 along with the Commission on High- er Education. The groups decided that the school should receive university status. On Nov. 16, 1 965, House bill 1 023 passed the House of Representatives, and the Senate Bill 1 passed two weeks later. On December 16, 1965, the bill was signed into law and " Indiana Uni- versity of Pennsylvania " began. Today, lUP has more than 12.800 students who come from every county in the Common- wealth of Pennsylvania, several other states and txnore than 40 foreign countries. The university has seven colleges and two schools. Within the 40 departments of the Uni- versity, students can study more than 100 majors. P From the beginning of the Normal School to the road of becoming a University, Indiana has flourished and met the challenges it faced and with confidence advances toward the future.
