Biographical note

Billy Mac Jones was the university's fifth president, serving 1969-1973. Jones was inaugurated on February 14, 1970. The college became a university as Jones' presidency began. Growth and national turmoil continued during Jones’ four-year tenure as president. Enrollment in the fall of 1972 soared to 11,804 as Jones began his last year. The changing times included the LBJ Student Center and Education Building, a new speech/drama center, a five-school liberal arts college replaced by a three-school university, and a name change.
