01:51, Jul 19 2012

Waikato University announced last week it was to build a "multimillion dollar flagship law and management building" on its campus within three years.

It would be built on Hillcrest Rd and the timing was appropriate with the 50th anniversary of the university falling in 2014.

The university's come a long way in less than 50 years. How far? Well here's a shot of the campus taken in 1969, with Hillcrest Rd in the foreground.
