With a new permanent home, a tradition of burning a 'K' on campus grounds begins. The dedication of the first building, Main Hall, occurs on November 18. The ceremony attended by nearly 500 includes such dignitaries as Gov. James Rhodes, Sen. Frank Lausche, and KSU president Robert White. Interesting comments by the governor include his prediction that enrollment will reach 15,000 and "there will be another ceremony here when you hand back the keys to Kent State University and become a full-fledged state university yourself."
