To accommodate for new academic programs and a larger student body, physical changes for campus are in the works as well. Heckler noted the need for biology and chemistry lab space, and introduced the plans for a new building near the Center for the Arts, Kretzmann and Meier Halls. Changes to the Athletics-Recreation Center will be made to add more seating, and possible classroom renovations in the Neils Science Center. Summer 2014 will feature the groundbreaking of an addition to the Chapel of the Resurrection.

Students expressed concerns about tuition costs, and Heckler assured that new growth will be adequate to cover costs.

“We’re not raising tuition in order to accomplish these new objectives,” Heckler stated.

Heckler mentioned the possibilities of raising revenue through the hosting of more camps and conferences, tickets to events in the ARC and possibly from an improved recycling system. There is also discussion over a wind turbine installation to drastically reduce energy costs.
