Students Building Wall

 Wall Building 

During the summer of 1941, students built the rock wall surrounding the campus mall. The students worked under the National Youth Administration (NYA) program which was a New Deal agency that operated from 1935-1943 to help alleviate the hard times created by the Great Depression. NYA students earned between $15 and $25 per month, a sum which helped many students stay in college.
