Central Campus, the medical area,
North Campus, and the routes con-
necting them have proven this
purchase to be a sound invest-
ment and made the University the
envy .of most universities. An im-
portant decision has already placed
the School of Music on North
Campus and the entire Engineer-
ing College is to be moved there
in five phases, to be completed by
1980.
This plan would leave Central
Campus to the other schools and
allow space for the medical center
to expand.
The Residential College has been
selected between the medical cen-
ter and the entrance to North
Campus on a site which is now a
city golf course. Funding will be
delayed but it is projected that
with its completion, one long, but
unified campus will be the result.
The residential program is tem-
porarily, being housed in a portion
of East Quadrangle.
Although the commitment for
the facilities is firm, the arrange-
ments may not be ready for con-
struction for more than a year. If
the concept proves as glamorous
as expected, other units may be
established on the far end of North
Campus.
But despite -strikes and funding
problems, actual construction to-
day dots the campus and signs
mark the location of other major
facilities which are approved,
funded and soon to be built.
The most conspicious site today
is that of the $16.8 million Dental
school building, which stands in
back of Health Service. The Old
Dental School facility is scheduled
for demolition in the winter of

administration offices will be
moved and the old building will
be converted to provide much-
needed literary college office space.
On the medical campus, a ten-
year expansion program to meet
the needs brought out in, a study
completed in 1965 is under way.
The study found that existing
facilities will not be adequate to
provide the minimum opportuni-
ties of medical education in 1975.

in the medical center. Funded by
federal and private grants, it will
be completed in 1970, at which
time the $4.5 million second phase
will begin 'which will allow the
school to double its enrollment.
On the North Campus, grants
