Before the construction of the familiar highrise at the edge of campus, the old Julia Tutwiler Hall stood where Rose is now, beside the President’s Mansion. (Click on any of the images below to view them at a larger size.)
In the late 1960s, the building we know today was built on Bryant Drive.
Once the old Tutwiler Hall on University Blvd was cleared away, construction could begin on Rose Administration.
It wasn’t long before Rose began to see what life was like at the University. Here it is being occupied in a sit-in…the same year it opened!
And here it sees a snowy afternoon on campus.
