In Topic: TCU's massive campus transformation continues

18 April 2018 - 08:44 AM

Here's the link to all the announcements- https://newsevents.t...u/stories/2821/


Rumor is that Sadler Hall (the main administration building) will be turned into academic space. It's alluded to in the article but not mentioned specifically. The thought is that buildings in the middle of campus should be for academic/student purposes and support services can be moved to the periphery. 


They're also looking to raise $750M to mostly go to the endowment. The goal is to make the university more accessible to all potential students regardless of income. Long term they want to double the endowment (currently about $1.5B) to make that possible.

Looks like today is an important vote for a high speed rail line that could possibly start at the Fort Worth Intermodal Transportation Center downtown. TXDOT wants it to start south of Arlington and follow 360 down 35E instead of 35W. The route would connect Waco, Temple, Austin, San Antonio, and Laredo (possibly into Mexico).

Looks like funding for the TRV is included in the omnibus bill that has cleared the House. The Star-Telegram states it's an "undetermined" amount. Not sure what that means.
