Since the erection of the New Lecture Hall in 1909, no academic class rooms have been constructed, although the enrollment of the College has increased to the point where the admission rules must hold it constant in numbers. That the College will remain the same numerically is probable, but, not even allowing for an increase, conditions to accommodate the student body in class rooms are inadequate. Were there more class rooms, the presentation of courses would be facilitated, and it would at the same time be possible to avoid the present abuse of having class meetings at inconvenient hours.
