The Klump Academic Center is the most historic landmark still in use on campus. The building opened in 1914 as Williamsport High School.
Adult vocational classes, held in the high school basement, led to the development of Williamsport Technical Institute (1941), Williamsport Area Community College (1965), and Pennsylvania College of Technology (1989).
Center of Celebrations
Throughout its history, the Academic Center has been a center of academic life in Williamsport. It was reported that when the building opened - as a high school - in 1914, 15,000 people attended a three-day celebration.
In addition to its vast array of classrooms, the center is home to a beautifully restored auditorium, which hosts both college and community events.
