I didn't realize the projected start of construction on the Strahan expansion/event center is June.

Looks like everything that hasn't already been started has its start date then. My issue is with the Music and Health Professions projects saying that they a looking funding. I think that they are partially funded and are actually just looking for the rest. But it doesn't say that in the presentation.

I reviewed the info quickly. Did I miss the football stadium south end/west side improvement?
or
Does the Aquarena Dr. project have to be completed before this can be done?

I think that the last bit of info was that the rest of the stadium won't be addressed until Strahan is finished. Should be part of the next Campus Plan being rolled out in May of 2017 but who knows. Which I am fine with if that is the case.

Thanks for posting... Looks nice.

Appears to be a referendum vote for the February election.

Read the Q&As: got a kick out of this obvious vote For answer.

Q: I graduate way before it's completeld ... Why should I vote yes?
A: The simple answer is that this is your legacy. ...

Sure, because everyone wants to be know for the increase in the LBJ Student Center Fee and leaving the future student classes in more debt than you will be. :lol:

If you're interested, they updated the Capital Projects link on the construction page to show some images of the new Engineering Building, some sketches of the proposed University Event Center expansion etc.

Post Re: Update on Master Plan
Those plans and illustrations/photos really make me wish I were starting school again in San Marcos. I suppose that's a perennial wish. But the campus is just getting better and better. Excited to see the projected fall 2018 occupancy date for the event center/Strahan expansion. Sure hope the basketball teams are much better by then.

Post Re: Update on Master Plan
My only complaint is that I wish they would have pulled all of the new construction into campus, and put the green space on the perimeter. That would have made it easier to get around campus, and would have created a nice transition to the rest of San Marcos. As it is, it is like they are walling themselves off from the city.

Just from a student's perspective, not sure I would want to go to school in a place that was just wall to wall. Think the saying is "Gray to green".

It wouldn't have had to be wall to wall.

The time it takes to get across campus is a pretty common complaint from students and faculty.

Not that it matters now. It just would have been nice.
