Something old and something new


Something new and something old added to the character of the campus. The first big event in the fall was the dedication of the Coughlin-Alumni Stadium on the northeast corner of the campus Sept. 22, 1962. With its usefulness outlived, the old stadium took its place in the background in honor of the concrete and steel structure, which stands 65 feet height, 275 feet long and seats 6,350 fans in 38 rows. On hand for the historic occasion were Charles Coughlin, outstanding alumnus and president of Briggs and Stratton Company, and members of the 1922 football squad that won the first North Central Conference championship.
