School Introduction

County College of Morris is located on 218 acres of rolling terrain in Randolph. The college first opened its doors to students in 1968 after Henderson Hall, the first building on campus, was completed. The first class consisted of 592 full-time and 703 part-time students under the direction of 64 faculty members and 37 administrators. Enrollment grew quickly, and by the fall of 1969, five additional buildings were under way: the library, later named the Sherman H. Masten Learning Resource Center after CCM's first president; Sheffield Hall; the Physical Education Building; the Student Community Center and a service building; all completed by 1970. In the spring of 1972, two additional academic buildings, Cohen and DeMare Halls, were under construction and occupied by the fall of 1973.

In 1982, the college reached its highest enrollment of 12, 012 students. That same year the Dalrymple House was renovated to house administrators. It was renovated again in 1994 to serve as CCM's Child Care Center.

President Masten retired in 1986 and Dr. Edward J. Yaw became the second president of CCM. Under his leadership, the college continued to grow. In 1989, the High Tech Building, later renamed Emeriti Hall, was added. In May 1990, the college broke ground on the new library expansion and by 1993, the 20, 000 square-foot expansion was completed. The expansion contains television and audio production studios, additional library seating areas and a 45-seat conference room.

Expansion continued and in 1994 the college completed the construction of two additions which joined the three academic science buildings. The 20, 417 square-foot expansion added classrooms, laboratories, faculty offices, student lounges and an expanded cafeteria. In 1997 the college also opened a six-lane aquatic facility joined to the Health and Physical Education Building.
