The new administration building will be L-shaped. It will have four floors totalling 57,660 square feet. To be built on land directly south of Old Main, it will be of brick construction, harmonizing w i t h other buildings on the campus. Grosz and Anderson, Grand Forks, are the architects. The first floor will have offices fo~ the accounting, buildings and grounds, and residence services de- Fartments, the stenographic bureau and the post office. On the second floor will be offices of the registrar, business manager, graduate school, news bureau and personnel deans. The president's office will be on the third floor together with the dean of the University College, ex- tension division and the board room, a conference room. The fourth floor will house the counseling center, audio-visual department, faculty lounge and a gallery.
