Did't they just put a bunch of money into it?

It should be preserved as a shelter so all the kids who get useless degrees can live there instead of moving back with their parents when they can't find jobs.

Oh no...Where will they force international students who don't go home over winter break, to stay?

... contrary to popular belief and rumor mattresses are not changed from room to room but from dorm to dorm when they close, remodel... do not have bed bugs... - a source

I hope they do not raze it, it has too much history and makes for an interesting skyline along with the other dorms. Can't it be re-furbished cheaper? I will always recall seeing it lit up at night coming into town from 59 Highway as a beacon of Lawrence.

Where are they going to put the surveillance camera that overlooks 19th and Iowa?

"...raze McCollum Hall?"

Just wait until the East Lawrence neighbors hear about this. You just know they will protest that it is already tall enough.

Isn't it in a historical district? It should be saved.
