The main floor of Coe Hall consisted of a dining hall, a cafeteria, an all-purpose room, a coffee shop, a lounge, a library, and the Great Hall. Massive portraits, rich tapestries, and moose and elk heads adorned the first floor walls (credit: University Archives, Stony Brook University).

The college did not initially assemble sports teams or organize extracurricular activities. Consequently, Coe Hall's "Coffee Shop" became the center of the social activity (credit: University Archives, Stony Brook University).

While tuition remained free for students preparing for careers as teachers, the enrollment fee for programs in mathematics, science, and engineering was $375 per year for New York residents and $455 for out-of-state students (credit: University Archives, Stony Brook University).
