I was walking out of my class in the new COX COMMUNICATIONS academic Center for Student Athletes and noticed something. There are benches and chairs in the two lobbies. Each item of furniture has a small plate with the name of a donor. There is a chair on the north side of the building with Gerry Dinardo's name on it. AND, I would just like to go on the record as saying that the new building is ridiculously expense and a bit too extreme. The auditorium in there holds 1,000 students. ONE THOUSAND STUDENTS. How can you have a class like that? The auditorium is about twice the size of an IMAX theatre. Each seat in the auditorium has a little keypad on it for surveys held by the professor. I guess it's kinda like the thing they have on the Millionaire show. I will say that the seats in there are incredibly comfortable. I won't mind taking a few midday naps in there this semester. ALTHOUGH, even the seats present a problem for me because there aren't any left-handed seats. Damn right-handed discrimination. Most people are in awe of the place, including me. I just don't think it's the best use of funds. What am I going to get out of that class that I couldn't get last semester in a 200-seat auditorium?
