New South, unlike its semantic opposite, Old North -- as Nassau Hall was once called -- is a building with little history, having been erected in 1965. However, its name was in the newspapers four years later when fifty members of the Association of Black Collegians occupied it for eleven hours to protest University policy on investments in companies doing business in South Africa. But this sit-in was a temperate exercise compared with the frequent and sometime riotous "barring out" of the faculty by students living in "Old North" early in the last century, not to mention the even livelier events that Nassau Hall survived in the century before.
New South was built to provide more ample space for some of the business departments of the University and to release for faculty use the offices these departments had occupied near the library. One of the first of the University's high-rise buildings, it has two stories below ground and seven above. Designed by Edward Larrabee Barnes of New York, and built of glass and concrete, it stands in the southern section of the Campus. The windows of the cafeteria on the seventh floor afford superb views of the campus and countryside.
