WANG A/AC DESTRUCTION NEWS
 


President Stanley's Lie Now Visible




   On this vast campus where 6-story dorms could be built in many empty spaces, just as the Hilton was built in 2013, or built more efficiently where infrastructure existed (high steam pipes), instead, an all-White building committee, never even thinking of the consequences, chose directly behind Wang AAC simply because it was two minutes walking distance closer to the academic mall than by LaValle, where piping existed and could have provided the stadium with an eating facility, similar to UT at Austin dorms.
 
 

   Rather than spend money to have new plans drawn, or even have the common courtesy to speak to those opposed, SBU's imperial President Stanley let construction proceed. Having already applied for the Penn State presidency (they didn't want him) and Cornell (they didn't want him either), he had no long term interest in SBU. His goal was to be gone before the dorms were complete, before proof of the lie about the dorms height vs. the Wang Center was obvious for all to see. But since no other school seems to want him, it seems we're stuck with him.  

   Where once the pagoda tower stood alone against the sky, making SBU the only SUNY campus with such an iconic structure it can be recognized just by that icon, now the bright stadium lights can be seen. From the stadium lot, the tower is no longer visible. From the north entrance, it is now blocked until almost upon it. From the main entrance the dorms are visible. The one concession to reduce the height is that some of the new dorms have been built one story into the earth rather than level. Most buildings have an embankment to keep rain water running away from the building, not towards it. Hopefully those stuck on the first floor below grade won't have to contend with too much flooding.

   Already rated one of the ugliest campuses in the US, with red brick buildings designed by prison architects Kelly & Gruzen and continued by a President and former Facilities VP (who got out while she had the chance - Brown's loss, our gain), who both lacked aesthetic vision (comparable to the new SBU logo), the one building that gave SBU character has been aesthetically destroyed. While from one and a half directions its pagoda tower still stands visibly alone, the beauty and serenity of its koi pond garden and the use of its special theatre windows have been lost - forever.
