How come Clarkson is spending $25 million on a new student center when there are vacant buildings sitting in downtown Potsdam? I would like to see those buildings being used instead of going to waste. Isn’t there anything that those buildings can be used for? Why spend more money on buildings that have to be built instead of renovating older ones? I also saw that the students voted on an increased student fee for the next ten years to cover the cost. Are those students going to still be students in ten years? I highly doubt that that vote will effect the current students drastically.
