do you think the gfcc will drop the club requirement and just be an open to the public course...sounds like membership is waaay down

Membership is not down. I think there should be some more golf rounds sold, but I don’t think they will go away from club requirements.

He is really fucking things up with this. A bunch of construction projects are phased sequentially and he’s hitting pause on a huge piece of that complex puzzle. This could make the building cost more because it could be built later.

Any idea on the state of operation/accessibility for the building that's currently standing? Plenty aware of the other workspaces that can be utilized in MU's place (Columbia Hall, Law School, CFL, most other buildings)...throwing a complete halt on the project seems unnecessary. $336/yr means a lot more to college students and their parents than it does us alumni and/or community members, but there's a reason the vote happened AND passed.

Interesting to see how a smaller private university, High Point, is now embarking on $200 million in building projects, including a new basketball arena.  High Point U moved up to DI in 1999, doesn’t have much endowment and has borrowed a lot, and they have more than tripled their enrollment to now over 5000 with students mostly coming from the northeast.  The town of High Point is one of the three cities of the Piedmont triad of Winston-Salem  -Greensboro - High Point.  High Point U seeks to be a high end residence for wealthier students.

Elon is comparable and 20 minutes away also recruits the northeast and Campbell U, a Baptist University, only with more growth outside Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill.

Two questions:  When will High Point move up to FBS and will they be joining the new WAC with the Dakota and Montana schools?! ;):D

Re: Memorial Union 

This seems like a very odd thing to do based on the fact that it was voted on and approved by the students. If he's so concerned about raising education costs why not freeze tuition, room and board?

It makes no sense. Is he trying to protect the students from themselves? Just dumb, it’s needed and they clearly want it.

His name will be associated with the project if it goes bad, so I can understand him wanting to know what is going on. The timing is certainly unfortunate though.

If he eliminates the auditorium and saves $5 million, will anyone complain?

The details below, UND is going to put more money into the project in exchange for a lesser student rate.

“Our updated proposal to the SBHE answered those questions by reducing the proposed increase in student fees by 55 percent when compared to the original plan.”

Great work!

This project is 70 to 80 million $

the legacy fund is averaging $50.5 million per month deposits this year so the project is about 1 1/2 months deposits.

why can’t state or local agencies borrow from this fund and pay 1% interest.  You would think this would be in the best interest of all of North Dakota .
