Bat house now permanently redeployed as the new Academic Engagement Center.


How can this house be suitable for use? Thought the dewelling was going to be too expensive to fix? But it's not too expensive to remodel for a repourpose?


They seem to be a bit batty on this subject! ;-)


You know, I do not care a bit about the desire to change Presidential living arrangements, just be honest and upfront about it, and be ethical in the deal. Both of which the University failed at miserably.


Got to agree with Billy on this one. Just tell the whole story. One thing to remember though that this was not on Hugh's watch. That kind of renovation doesn't happen in a month. This was under the other guy.

Agreed. And speaking more broadly, I hope the ridiculous culture of secrecy in general dies under this new presidential regime.

Good luck with that! I'd say the Board is as much at fault and more in control than many want to realize.

There's an article in today's The Post about the Academic Engagement Center.

The article has a link to the 2017 Post article about the initial Planning Commission Meeting to discus the future use(s) of the house.
