NTID's New Building!

G'day Everyone!

Yes, it's coming. NTID is creating another building. But the only place that's falling victim to construction is a small parking lot near the dorms and near the old NTID dining commons area (now CSD building).

If you don't believe me, then check this out:

By the time the NEXT NTID reunion hits, everyone is going to find major changes on campus. Not just NTID, but RIT as a whole!

However, the calls are getting louder out there and people are telling RIT to stop with all the constructions and let the land rest for a good decade.

It's really a sad thing. From the 1980's, RIT was a young university that had a really nice country setting that made it peaceful enough for students to face the boiler pressures of 10 weeks (12) of classes in a quarter setting. Now in the present time, RIT is flipping itself of looking more like a university city of it's own and the need to relax the pace of classes by switching to the Semester system. Will it be good for the students?
We will just have to see.

Until next post, I'll clue you in later.

I'm not sure why RIT thinks throwing up buildings faster than the Amish is an improvement. While it's nice to see NTID getting some love, things like "innovation center" and "strategic research center" seem really hokey.

I'd rather see them focus on some of the recurring student issues. It would also be nice to enjoy the campus for at least a year before they tear some part of it up again.
