The Diamondback published a editorial yesterday urging the University to show leadership in the now flailing East Campus project.
Although East Campus may take much longer than expected to complete, the administration must put forth a realistic and straightforward plan now to ensure the project remains feasible.
If East Campus is going to come to fruition any time soon, university officials need to get out ahead of these problems. The vagueness of their statements and what appears to be a lack of direction will not convince many lawmakers.
I could not agree more. What started out as a very promising project has been on a disturbing downward spiral. Mrs. Wylie and other campus officials should take a hard look at this project and decide if East Campus is a priority for the campus and City or not. What is needed is a clear plan for moving forward. Right now what we have is a 38 acre question mark.
