    Is this another ruse to eventually push thru light rail??? (we tore down the field house just for this - you have to approve it!!!)

    No way! I love the 1911 Building. Old creaky floors. It's creepy!

    Funny how they can keep things around at NCSU that they want to keep around for decades. Did they ever remove the old smoke stack that was once at the physical plant? Why keep the old Chancellor's residence since a multi-million dollar one was built SO far from main campus it is a joke. And with all that is being done at Centennial Campus, how much longer before main campus is obsolete?? Next thing you know, Reynolds will come down, ladies will play with men at PNC and that too will become a parking deck! Change is going to come. However, at what point does change overtake nostalgia, history and pure common sense?? The field house for years housed Public Safety. The underneath of the stadium housed Fire Safety and part of operations for the Physical Plant.

    Anything charming and historic at NC State must come down in the name of bricks and concrete. It was a rat's nest anyhow. Next month they need to destroy the 1911 building or whatever year it's from.

    Tradition is cool, change is inevitable. Sometimes (not always) the old must be moved for the new. This is one of those times.

    If it was an academic building, it would get more consideration..Very sad.. Light rail's not happening for years and it's been a tunnel obstruction for years..What's the rush..
