With the influx of veterans to the Institution immediately following the end of World War II and the passage of the GI Bill of Rights, the institution had to create additional housing, classroom buildings, vocational shops, and faculty. The enrollment of veterans in 1945-46 was 236, and by 1947-48 the enrollment had increased to 737 veterans with a large number on the waiting list, according to Dr. Davis' Annual Report of 1947. With the aid of FPHA (Federal Public Housing Authority) the college established several temporary units for married veterans and college families, and for single veterans.
