On this day in 1961, the Stevenson Building, commonly referred to as ‘The Stevie’, was opened by the Principal of the University at the time, Sir Hector Hetherington. Surprisingly one of the (slightly) prettier 1960’s buildings, the building contains the gym and other sports facilities, including a swimming pool. I’ve yet to step into the building, besides the brief visit during last year’s Freshers’ Week. Maybe one day.
