  1. It’s a pity that BU doesn’t seem to be paying much attention to the problem we have that there is a shortage of good large classrooms. It seems odd that revitalization doesn’t seem to include classrooms, since students spend so much time in class. When we will see our classrooms improve?

  2. Meanwhile, Kenmore Square keeps getting uglier. BU could have required the developers to whom they sold the historic Westgate building to restore it; instead, it’s a mass of rubble, and the new commercial building planned for that corner is hideous.
