Evidently, it's been a long time since many of the posters on here have been anywhere on campus except for ballgames. For those complaining about UT's lack of spending on facilities, you are wrong. There have been and continue to be many major improvements. New buildings for several colleges, such as business, and engineering, music, Ayers Hall with an interior refurb, T-REX student athletic and intramural, a beautiful new and enlarged student union, well ... on and on. New Sorority Park facilities to replace the outmoded Pan-Hellenic (my daughter appreciates that). And yes, by all means use Google Earth or Maps to check out the old Cherokee Farms across the river being converted into new and more than adequate space for educational facility expansion,- Materials Science being only one-(as opposed to ActualUTAlum's incorrect assertions above).
Yes, lots has been done for educational facilities, residence hall, parking, streets, student union, etc., etc., etc. So much going on all at once that they established a web presence called "The Cone Zone" to help folks with the day-to-day logistics of getting around on a campus with constant construction-everywhere.
So, Actually and factually; planning, funding, and starting (or having already completed) construction on all the other is why UT is finally getting around to bringing down asbestos ridden Stokely and looking for money to fund that and the practice fields and replacing Gibbs.
For those who want to hold on to the old girl, I must ask, when did mommy and daddy finally getcher blanky & binky away?
