Construction image from '50s/'60s

Then: This image from the middle of the 20th century, two workers on girders silhouetted against the sky, reflects a common sight during the 1950s and 1960s. In the 1960s alone, the Oswego campus opened 29 new buildings, including those around the acadmic quad, most of central campus and most of what was then known as "New Campus" -- Cayuga, Glimmerglass, Onondaga, Pathfinder and Seneca halls (plus Oneida in 1970). Yet, due in large part to tighter budgets, new construction on campus ground to a halt for nearly 35 years, until the Campus Center began rising as a new hub.

Construction of science facilities

Now: Starting with the groundbreaking for the Campus Center in 2003, the construction of new, visionary and state-of-the-art buildings has returned to Oswego. The Campus Center opened in 2006, and the new Village townhouse complex welcomed its first residents in fall 2010. Current construction focuses on the new Science and Engineering Innovation Corridor, where a new building will attach to Piez Hall to create a 233,000-square-foot home to future scientists.
