Description
"Some 300 Colby students, faculty, and trustees on Monday witnessed the start of construction of the $3.5 million student center which President William Cotter called 'our symbol' of the new residential life system. Despite protest from 30 former fraternity members, the ceremonies went smoothly and with overwhelming approval. Dignitaries made remarks and then in unison proceeded to break ground under the direction of Trustee Chairman H. Ridgely Bullock." --Colby Echo 9/20/1984
