    Some sports, some non-sports, but regardless, more going on around campus than I knew about.

    Auxiliary library, residence hall just two constructions projects at O-State

    STILLWATER, Okla. — The Oklahoma State University campus will be receiving a facelift this year. Many construction projects are under way and several more will start this year.

    Sorry in advance to all that are offended/have a romantic relationship with Kerr/Drummond, but this campus will be 10 times better when those building are torn down. What eye sores. What will take their place? Also, why are they keeping Wentz?

    I have no problem letting Kerr/Drummond go; but, it will be sad to see them go. Alot of good times there.

    The new halls will be amazing, but I will be very sad when they tear down KD.

    Scott-Parker-Wentz is still a money maker with the dining it has built in and the buildings have been receiving a lot of work the last couple of years. They will be sticking around for a while.

    So, is Edmon Low essentially becoming the study hall annex of the Student Union?

    I heard on the Fiesta Bowl broadcast that many people associated with UCF say it stands for "under construction forever." They went on to talk about how big the university is getting and that the growing pains are just part of it.

    Did they secure funds for Business School?

    My understanding is that they are moving ahead, though they had to trim it back. The removal of Hanner Hall is step one. I heard Morrill Hall is safe due to trimming back, previously I was told that it was in danger. That said, Morrill Hall needs some serious attention, the building requires foundational work and a complete gutting.

    Morrill does need serious work. Unfortunately it also houses one of the most seriously underfunded departments at the university, English.

    I'd like to see the CIVE labs get some updating or a new building. It was really difficult to do environmental water sampling test work done when everything in the ENV lab was covered in a fine layer of concrete dust from the dudes busting cylinders next door, or having to take samples out of the lab and across the way to the ATRC to use the chromatograph.

    I wonder if the school would ever consider building an underground metro system to ferry students/visitors around. Campus keeps on getting bigger and bigger and that bus system is eventually going to need to be replaced.

    Our bus system is pretty awesome right now, actually. All of the buses have been converted to CNG so they aren't blowing smoke all over campus as they drive around. Also, have a sweet Live Bus Tracking System. http://thebus.okstate.edu

    We are on limited routes right now due to winter break, but when classes are in session, this is really handy for students with the tons of buses flying around campus and town.

    From what I was told, Morrill was never in serious danger. Too much history and tradition there. Even though it needs major renovation, it is close to being up there with Old Central in buildings that would cause an uproar if they were torn down.

    Be thankful. There was a long dry spell when the University was doing all it could to keep the lights on.

    I'd lie down in front of the bulldozers for Morrill. I have a post card pic of Morrill with a horse and buggy out front. It's been there a while.

    Then start a campaign to revitalize it, because it is a dump. I don't understand the outcry to keep a building no one cares enough about to prevent it from utter decay. I realize no one on here has the cash to change it, but we could start the movement.

    I like Morrill - I'd also lay you down in front of the bulldozers for it.
