You know the higher ed system is totally screwed up when they built the NDUS computer center* at UND (where there is about as much electrical engineering/comp sci expertise as there is ag expertise.) In fact, I bet that we're more likely to see ag research buildings at UND than anything useful to NDSU's students.
* Although, with Skarphol's whole-hearted endorsement, the NDUS computer center project suddenly sprouted classroom space.
OFFICIAL BISONVILLE SPONSOR OF:Tatanka™ brand humor. Gary Bettman's incompetence. The process of recommending a task force to recommend a process to be suggested to another task force, and of meetings called to discuss future meetings. The 16+% of teh university students that, unlike Tatanka, are online-only. And hating Detroit...Proud member of TOHBTC and NDSU Team Makers.
The STEM building is a great idea. As someone who put in a lot of hours in Stevens and Ladd, the classroom space and teaching labs are in dire need of upgrading. Of course, I spent most of my time in the basement of Stevens and would really like to see the Geosciences building actually hold the geology department. I don't see any mention of funding for that on here, but there's been talk for years of them finally moving over.
