The decade began with classes taught in rented office space in noisy downtown Brooklyn. By the end of the decade students, faculty, and administrators settled into a beautiful Georgian-style campus in the heart of the borough, with a new President taking the helm. Brooklyn College’s first decade formed the character of the college and laid the foundation for future growth, challenges, and conflicts, as well as a tradition of academic excellence.
