Rachel Trautner, President of the Student Government Association, suggested, "If GAN2A, for instance, was allotted more money then we could get bigger and better bands to come and play." SGA also expressed the need for renovation of the dorms. Many of them are m poor condition. The college is considering additional renovations to buildings like the Belk Center and P.E. Building. When will there be substantial fiinds to finance these projects? Several issues prevent the immediate availability of large amounts of money for these projects. "[The funding is] driven by what the donors are interested in," said Baldasare. Donors are going to have to be found who will be interested in ideas like dorm renovation. Another problem is finding alumni with substantial money to give to St. Andrews, since the school is still fairly young, being just over forty years old. Things are looking good for the $25 million "Share the Vision" campaign, which ofEciaUy started on September 24. Almost half of the money had already been raised during an 18-month period prior to the kickoff date. Among the goals for the campaign is $5 million for student support scholarships and programs and another $5 million for new facilities and renovation. -Andv Brewer Back to Front Page November 11, 1999 fl 11/19/99 4:27 PM
