And once again, we are up against, not the whole university, but the alumni association. It will still be difficult to effect any change, but it's a lot more manageable than fighting against something that is spearheaded by the chancellor and university upper-management like the name change was.


While I believe this is a worthy cause, the problem is what we're against is some guy with a suit (or possibly a committee of said someguys) on that wants to put that he built this building on his resume, and he has all manner of bureaucratic channels to give people who care the runaround.

What makes me mad is that they call alumni constantly bugging them for money under the pretense that it is going be used to help students, and then they spend the money on this.


Actually you're up against a really nice lady who will probably listen to you if you go in and talk to her.

lulz. I didn't say she was a push over, but she's definitely really nice and would probably love to have a conversation about it...

qft. If you think this building would make for a viable business, go convince a banker of that, get a business loan, and try to buy the building back. Otherwise any recommendation to renovate the building is useless.

Seeing as the last post was ~6 months ago stating that the uptown was in a landfill, yes I'd say it's been torn down a while now.

This is the problem with the country, too many idiots can vote. The building has been gone for a while, the hippies and dopers lost, that's it. Dead issues are just that, dead.

Sounds like you've got a pretty good handle on the country; good job, dipshit.
