Parking. You have to park in your reserved spot. Der.

I'm a bit surprised that that was considered a hidden "gem" to dissuade people. Everywhere I've lived downtown had reserved parking. I had a reserved spot at the Electric Building, and I have a reserved spot at the Sanger Building. I didn't think it was really all that odd.

I've never seen anybody parking on level six, either. Seems like it might be a bit difficult, since there's no ramp . . . and it's OFFICE space.

My sources assure me that the new place will serve three meals per day. Does Taco Diner?

Time for a new rumor. The Piranha sign came down yesterday and the place looked dark (although I was going fast and couldn't see very well).

What's up with that?

I think you're taking my remark a tad too personally. Sure, there are a handful of residents in The Tower - and I'm sure in other downtown residences - that attend TCC. That's fantastic, I spent the first two years of my college education commuting from suburban Arlington to TCC; and enjoyed some of my favorite classes while studying there.

. . .

My point is that I fail to see how either campus location would reach these under-served parts of our community. Certainly most if not all downtown residents would not fall in this category. The new downtown campus is not any more accessible to these residents than any of the existing four campuses are.

I'm afraid that you missed my point, which was that there are many times more than a "handful" of residents in the Tower who attend TCC, and I'm still very curious to know why you think otherwise. I'd also like to hear why you think that "most if not all" downtown residents would not fall into the category of "under-served," and why a downtown campus would not be more accessible to downtown residents than the other four campuses.

Across a state highway. You may as well should have placed it across the river at that point. And no offense to the Tower residents, though I hardly see many of them attending classes at TCC. Of course, the senior residents (65+) at Trinity Terrace might appreciate the free tuition.

I hardly consider Belknap Street to be an obstacle; I cross it on a regular basis. Quite a bit easier than swimming across the Trinity, in fact.

I'm curious as to why you would think that Tower residents wouldn't attend TCC. Actuallly, there are quite a few of us who live at the Tower and currently take classes at TCC (three of us car-pooled together last semester); my wife is currently finishing her degree there, and hopes to take her last classes at the new campus.
