  1. Wow! Quite a portfolio of capital improvements to our Dear Old State. We are lucky to have this fine institution with the related level of investment it brings imbedded in our community. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I spent a lot of hours in the Ag Engineering building. It was old and tired back then. Nope, I won't tell you how old I am!!
