    Curtiss Hall Renovation

    Construction of ISU football training facility approved | Des Moines Register Staff Blogs

    "A $12 million renovation of Curtiss Hall will create a student services mall, a commons area and will modernize classrooms and offices. The project will be paid for with $7 million in private donations. An assortment of university funds will pay for remaining costs."


    What is a student services mall?

    Budget crisis at Iowa State my ***. Luckily they can come up with $5,000,000 pretty easy.

    I would guess that they are going to move some of the more frequently used student services offices to Curtiss to try and centralize more of that stuff on Central Campus. I wonder if they have other plans for Alumni Hall (or whatever the hell it's called now), because I think that's where a lot of that stuff is located now.

    I think it is more a College of Ag student services mall. They wanted to make all the services such as career, study abroad, etc. in one area that is easy for students to find. Last year, Dean Acker came and gave a presentation to one of our ag classes. He seemed to be pretty excited about it. Too bad they couldn't have done it while I was still a student.

    That would make more sense.
