Could $4.35 million be spent better elsewhere

And, VU is in the design stage of planning a new, 80 thousand square feet math, science, and engineering building.

WHIP sponsors blood marrow drive

Everyone wants to do something to help other people with illnesses in any way they can. Some people donate money but others donate something even better.

The lighting on Vincennes University is either very little or not at all. Walking back behind the Physical Education Complex, I noticed that there are maybe three light posts in the entire area. Lots of students come out of the PE Complex after their closing hour, 11 p.m. and it's not safe for students to walk around in the dark, especially late at night, and there is also a street students have to cross.
