Uva did need the lecture space for large events and for things


that got moved by weather indoors on Finals Weekend and more. There was not an adequate space for those events with the University's growing population. Yes, sold to donors for one thing but from Day 1 of it being a possibility the Admin and BOV said where it would benefit the entire University.

I understand potential benefits, but am looking at the bigger picture of where the majority of stakeholders at UVA will be on this.
For example to paraphrase one BOV member, do we really need this and can they not win without this, as the efforts in athletics should be elsewhere.

From what I have heard it was announced in hopes that a donor would make it their donation to the bicentennial campaign. Now they may have someone privately holding the cards right now. However, everything that is out there is saying the announcement was done to appease Bronco and say see we are trying in addition to have it as a major option announced before our anniversary. Scuttlebutt currently is the target date for being complete is years away.
