Work began in 1969 on a new campus for Terra on Napoleon Road west of Fremont, and Roy Klay Hall, the first building, was named in honor of Terra's founding president. Terra Technical College became Terra State Community College in the summer of 1994 and Associate of Arts and Associate of Science were added to the Associate of Applied Science degrees granted by Terra.
