Building the College of Southern Idaho Campus 1967-1972

After seven years of seeking to create a viable junior college between 1960 and 1967, a vote created the junior college district, a site was selected, a bond issue was passed and ground was broken.  The community relished the building of the campus between 1967 and 1972.  The CSI Tower was completed in December 1967.   The Twin Falls Times-News detailed the construction of the seven buildings as the paper provided pictures of the drama.  Locals brought guests to see the progress.  Special open houses and celebratory events defined each accomplishment.
