Spirit Magazine Cover, January 1979
Featured perhaps most prominently, the call for a new campus was hardly unique to 1979. Plans for construction were announced as early as 1972, however, the city's economic woes delayed development forcing the college to rely on a scattered mix of rented and owned properties in Jamaica, Queens. It was not until 1986, twenty years after the college's founding, that the school opened the first of its permanent buildings on its present campus.
Spirit Magazine, a self-described "third-world publication", was the creation of York College students and reflected the concerns and priorities of the college's large black student population.
