In early spring 1974, ETSU started its largest building project ever ---  the construction of an indoor covered football stadium. In theory, it would be a multi-function building, but the design was specifically for football games. Other uses were secondary, including basketball games, teaching PE classes, intramural activities, and, more importantly, other big assembly functions such as graduation ceremonies etc. The building place was on the old stadium site, together with some other adjacent areas. Included was the site of the old Math Building, which was too small by that time even for just the teaching classrooms and faculty offices. But, of course, the new building would not solve these simple academic problems! I took a few pictures of the initial construction, so you can see the size of this enormous task:  minidome-3  minidome-2minidome
