About Us

In the early years of the Camden Campus, the Campus Center had been in the basement of the Presbyterian church at Fifth and Penn Streets. The bond issue of 1959 allowed the college to build a $1.1 million dollar campus center for the students in the Fall of 1964. Later, as the college expanded even more, it was decided to add on to the Campus Center, and, in 1976, a $1.7 million dollar wing was added. The new addition provided 20,000 square feet to the students and included a large lounge area, a mutipurpose room, student meeting rooms, and a tavern.
