PENN HALL home* classrooms. Hbrory en beautiful 30-ocre comfy*. AS WE LOOK FORWARD to this new Decade of Progress we are aware that 1973 will mark 100 years of educational service at William Penn College. By the close of this decade the goals of the century should be largely attained. ^ During the 1960's Penn should attain a size and strength to rank in influence with the top colleges of the nation. The location, organization, and program, together with the attitude of college supporters, point toward the attainment of this goal. At present Penn has campus and plant facilities to accommodate 500 students. The quality of faculty and staff insure efficiency of instruction and operation. This size should be attained quickly within two or three years. .BEYOND THIS POINT in enrollment, additional buildings and equipment will be needed. A modern dormi- tory for men, a library, science hall, and student union are in the planning stage. The dormitory for men is first on the building program. This building is a must now that the former dormitory has been reassigned as the fine arts building -- Griffith Hall. Application has been made for a federal loan to cover the major portion of the cost of construction. It is hoped that substantial foundation aid can be obtained for the other buildings named. With the enlarged facilities an enrollment of 750 could be accommodated before 1970 rolls around. With 125-150 outstanding graduates each year, Penn will provide its share of leaders in American life. Dr. S. A. Watson, President William Penn College Costs are reasonable THE STUDENT attending William Penn pays only a little over one-half the actual cost of his education with the balance being contributed by the friends of the college. Average costs per year for tuition, fees, board and room are: Tuition and fees Board and room S551 470 (if applicable) Total for year $1021 LOANS, SCHOLARSHIPS and work grants are available for qualified applicants. More than one-third of the present student body are helping to pay their expenses with jobs at the college or in the community. - ^ Visit Penn campus PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS and their parents are urged to visit our beautiful campus at the northern edge of Oskaloosa, a progressive city of 12,000 population. One of the best ways to judge whether Penn is the college for you is to attend classes, meet the faculty and students and get acquainted with the college community.
