TitlePurdue newsreel, 1957-1958
DescriptionThis year, Purdue used for the first time closed circuit TV to allow teachers to reach a larger group of people. The long standing tradition of seniors creating a pair of yellow cords to be worn after the first parade lives on. (This tradition is continued in 2006 with the participation of 6 student organizations). Tarkington Hall and Wiley Hall were dedicated this year.
Description ContinuedMany students are shown at the new outdoor swimming pool at the Co-Rec, cooling off. The reflection pool at the Memorial Union was completed, (it has been since removed). Memorial Lawn had a complete facelift, adding crossing sidewalks and landscaping. Ground breaking for the Veterinarian Science building was done this year. Purdue University Vice President Dr. R. B. Stewart rededicated the "Old Pump, " a campus landmark which was refurbished by the Purdue University Reamer Club.
