Where's Nate?

living large in the four-oh-eight. wicked large.


so long, western half of campus.

wait 'til you kids see the 'winter quad.'

It's an exciting time at Ross. The B-school is essentially closing up shop on half of the block that comprises the campus and will begin razing the buildings soon. Members of the Ross community received the following email this morning:

This fall returning students and alumni will discover a dramatically different Stephen M. Ross School of Business campus, the result of an accelerated fundraising, design and construction process that promises to produce a world-class new building by 2008. To accommodate the construction, Davidson Hall, Assembly Hall and the Paton Accounting Center building on the western half of the campus will be razed after students leave at the end of April.

I've been through campus construction before. And while it's a minor nuisance for the current students and faculty (as my father-in-law would say, "We'll be elbow to armpit."), the long-term vision is a good one. The only thing missing right now from a community that includes premiere instruction, the most innovative curriculum in the US News Top Ten, and 900 of the brightest students in the world is a world class facility.

So next fall, when the pitter patter of jackhammers and soothing beep of Caterpillars helps me fall asleep in my Accounting elective, feel free to wake me up. Then remind me why I'm here in the first place.

    I am so excited about the new building. I am joining Ross this Fall. While I believe the new building would not be ready till Fall 2008, I am still looking forward to the executive building. Hope to meet you there too.
