Under Dr. Robert Mills, the area on Jackson Street, across from John L. Hill Chapel, was developed in the 1960s and 1970s, with eleven small units housing six hundred students. Accommodations were made for independents, fraternities, and sororities with the development of south campus in 1971. In the early 1960s, Knight Hall, on College Street, was also built for women and a new president’s home was purchased. The George Matt Asher Science Center was dedicated at homecoming in 1968, and Giddings Hall was renovated with the help of the Brown Foundation of Louisville, Kentucky. Hundreds of public school teachers came back to earn master’s degrees for certification purposes.
