School Notes

  • 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. 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 fall of 1973, two additional academic buildings, Cohen and DeMare Halls, were completed. 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 a Child Care Center. Expansion on the main campus 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. County College of Morris is licensed by the State of New Jersey and accredited by the Commission on Higher Education of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.
