    I donít know everyone who visits this forum but I know Iím not smarter than Jason. Beyond that weíve got educators on here, a dentist, business owners etc. etc. all of which are much smarter than me. So I will go ahead and dispute that - but thank you!

    I didnít say - you donít have a clue. I said, if you think your the only one with a clue then you donít have a clue. You need to decide if the shoe fits.
    Look, you attacked me for disagreeing with someone. I'm sure that person does a great job building homes and is probably involved in designing things for his customers. However, that is not the same as putting in a bid to do the work that ISU has already paid an engineering firm to design. If the contractor is doing the designing then ISU is paying twice for the same thing. I don't need to try on the shoe. My name in not Cinderella!

    Had the opportunity to tour the new Vigo County Historical Society in downtown Terre Haute this weekend. Which is located on Wabash near Clabber Girl/Hulman Center and that museaum is going to be fantastic when completed. 3 stories of history - really neat what they've done with that building so far.

    Terre Haute gets a lot of people dumping on it but in the next 2 to 4 years you will have all of the following downtown museums.

    Children's Museum
    Vigo County Historical Museum
    Larry Bird Museum - Convention Center
    Clabber Girl Museum
    Swope Art Museum
    Veterans Memorial War Museum
    CANDLES Holocaust Museum (relocating to downtown)

    All of these are either already downtown or will soon be downtown - all within 5 minutes walking distance in any direction of each-other! With the renovation of the Hulman Center, new hotel and parking garage our downtown area is really starting to taking on new life! If we can only get a few more restaurants/bars and shops in the downtown area!

    I just saw on Twitter that Clink took a tour of Loyola’s new basketball practice facility that is under construction. Hmm maybe getting some ideas.

    Well, the Sycamores are laying enough bricks tonight the facility should be done around midway through the second half.

    I know that we wish the renovations to Hulman Center were more like the earlier plans. But, it’s stil exciting to go by and see the construction fences up and work actually being done. I’m gonna try to be happy with whatever we get, still will be better than it is now.

    Getting needed structural improvements along with electrical, HVAC and plumbing work is essential. After getting that completed I just hope there is enough money remaining to replace those awful orange seats. After that it's all window dressing. Even in its current configuration there are no bad seats in the Hulman Center.

    I think it would suck to have to sit at the end of the bench.

    Very well could be--but if you are getting a free education ...

    Perhaps I've missed it …..but has ISU posted any illustrations, pictures, etc. on the GoSycamores site of the Hulman Center project ?
    I saw a basic one -- I think here but I've seen nothing at ISU sites that I know of …..?
