TitlePurdue newsreel, 1959-1960
DescriptionThe new Heavilon Hall opened. Every student received a hearing and sight exam in the building as part of their health check. Echo free rooms were created in the building to do calibrating on audio tools. Just like every year prior, the seniors line up for their Senior Cord day parade. Students donned yellow corduroy pants and skirts (known as "cords"), derbies, canes, and beards.
Description ContinuedAfter the first snow of the year the tennis courts behind the RSC were used for ice-skating. Purdue held its annual elections in grand form to see who the masses thought would win the upcoming election. Representatives from Congress were keynote speakers and after the elections President elect John F. Kennedy stopped at Purdue University to muster support and thank students for electing him in their mock elections.
