Campers in lines

After WWII and the enactment of the GI Bill, a massive influx of soldiers enrolled at the Pennsylvania State College. To house these veterans, trailers were brought to campus as living quarters. This area, located near present-day Redifer Commons, South Halls and the Breazeale Nuclear Reactor, became known as "Windcrest."
