I wonder how many of our "old facilities" will be torn down?

I specifically asked Jennifer Thomas (on twitter) why there was no mention of Dubois' lack of a push for a medical school. She replied that she will be following up about the issue (not sure in what capacity) and we should hear a response shortly.




A urban area poised grow to 2.75 million by 2030 needs a medical school and it should be ran by a university who know the needs of the community, not a university who will treat it like "passion project".

He'll probably refer to this joint statement made in May of last year which asserts that Charlotte does have a medical school, and maybe longterm, if there's significant funding, UNC Charlotte could take on a larger role in the school.

"Plans call for 107 trains to arrive on campus every day starting in August 2017. Thatís every seven minutes during peak hours, he adds. It just draws the campus so much closer to the rest of the community."

This is very exciting.

Students will get to ride for "free" using their student ID (they pay for it in their transportation fee); busses, too.

clt says that is too many trains. Sad.
