Construction sites are a fixture of many college campuses, with surprise detours and blocked off sidewalks a common hindrance for students. The completion date for most on-campus construction projects at A&M are usually TBA, but in an almost unheard of special occasion, this Mugdown reporter has finally learned exactly when the construction will be completed: after your graduation.
Joe Platt, construction site manager said, “the construction crew will be able to clean up and get out of the way of on-campus student activity just after you receive your degree and move out.”
Even though the exact construction site in question is unknown and all current projects were supposed to be completed in January, The Mugdown has been assured that construction will end (sometime) after you graduate.
Megan Osborne, a graduating senior, told The Mugdown, “I thought that I would be able to enjoy, or at least see, the new Rec center before I graduated, but really I am just glad to know that it will be done by some class’ graduation date.”
As uninformative and unspecific as this report has been, thanks to lack of dependable resources and accurate construction schedules, rest easy on the fact that construction of that one building somewhere will come to fruition post-commencement.
