LSC Expansion Land Used As Field Until Further Funding Found
The Houstonian reports that the former site of Smith-Kirkley Hall - land to be used for expanding the Lowman Student Center - will be used a field until funds can be collected:
Construction to level out the area behind [the] Lowman Student Center (LSC) will create an outdoor field intended for use by students and organizations, according to Daniel McDaniel, LSC director. “The idea for the area is that maybe we could bring the Sam Jam carnival here, Greek life events, and other outdoor student activities,” McDaniel said. “Right now, the only other outdoor places students really have to go are the intramural fields and the Farrington pit.”
Although the field will be used by students over the course of the next few years, it is only a temporary void until funding for the LSC expansion comes through. Once that happens, the LSC will be expanded and take place of the field.
Construction will cost approximately $30,000 and should be completed by the end of October.
