Campbell Hall was known by most as the Old "State High" or the Vocational Building. Built in 1928,
it was reconstructed in 1931 as a vocational training building containing an auditorium, laboratories, shops,
classrooms and drafting rooms of the Trade and Technical Department and serving the needs of an extensive program.
During World War II courses were taught 24 hours a day training for the needs of the war. The West Virginia State
College Teacher Training High School moved to the third floor. This school graduated numberous scholars and trained
many of our successful teacher education graduates.
In 1973 the Vocational Building was renamed Campbell Hall in honor of the former Principal [President], J. Edwin Campbell. The
facility later housed the Industrial Technology Department and Graphic Production Shop.
