Science complex,
Completion of a new science complex
at the College relies directly on a state
legislative decision to appropriate ap­
proximately 65 percent of total costs. But $
ultimately, completion relies on student
The College Board of Education can
approach the legislature with the facts
regarding the practicality of a science
wing. But it lies on the students’
shoulders to promote the incentive for
the building’s worthiness.
Without the new complex, the College
will suffer financially in terms of
declining FTE (full time equivalency) and
increasing utility and maintenance costs.
But the students will suffer more.
The extreme is that continual use of the
modular buildings, which are already
outdated, has already caused apathy
towards the science curriculum, resulting g
in negative response to the field of scien­
ce. The reality is, without state support,
the College can only afford to build half g
the needed facility.

The room was crowded.
People jammed around tables,
shouting and waving books in
the air. I proceeded to the
nearest group for a closer look.
