This looks like it’s where the old softball field was.


Unless something has changed that's where it is going.


I do think they changed this plan. I believe a stand alone dinning facility is going where dorm 7 use to be.


I have not heard this but will try to get clarification tomorrow. I’m still told C4 with the incorporated dining hall is going on the old dorm 7 site.

#538218 The school of Engineering is going where the old softball field was. You can find it on the VMDO website. It is really nice! I couldn't find a link to take you there so if someone knows how please share. The will have a mechanics garage which I thought was a great addition. Thank you LUAlum for checking on the stand alone dining facility. I look forward to seeing what they do. Look forward the the nursing program getting their own facility as well.

The source you're using for the school of engineering is from a year ago. Things have changed since then.

Ballcoach, my understanding it that area is going to be LU's newest parking lot.

I have often thought that LU should eliminate all reserved parking and just have "first come, first served" parking, campus wide.


I've always thought that those that are fans of Liberty athletics should be a member of the Flames Club.

#540851 Walking across campus yesterday, I noticed the students' side concessions and bathroom building was being town down at Wiilliams Stadium, as the expansion continues!

#540900 The entire project should be kicking into gear on that side of the stadium. I love that they were able to get a rolling start with standards for the upper deck before the season ended.

#540926 I'm really curious if they can swing getting the "bowl" done. I don't doubt the grand stand and tower. They've done it before. But that bowl, the entry way, and all the brick they showed for the pathways. Oh and rerouting university Blvd with a new roundabout at the bridge.

#540929 I secretly hoped that the old nacho cheese machine was part of the concession stands demo. :pray

I can't call the new one David's place. David's place was where the baseball stadium is. The ratty building for the worship majors.

The Music and Worship programs both utilize the new School of Music.

His senior year was my sophomore at MHS. He did get that ring in 2007. I thought he was working up at the Big House in Ann Arbor.

I was still in middle school at the time. I thought he got some regional honors on the Defensive side of the ball too. Dude was exactly the talent disparity scouts look for.

#542497 I’m not sure if Neo is serious, but the source that you can look into has been discussed since 2014. JJR did say they were interested in an arena and hopefully it be built in 5 years (was noted in News & Advance article in 2014). I have posted the source before but here it goes again:
http://www.newsadvance.com/news/local/l ... f6878.html

Again I will say that this information is not 100%, however we shouldn’t be surprised if this plan come into fruition soon.

Dude just pops up out of nowhere every once in a while with key info...that seems to be legit.

You can go back to asking him for sources now. :roll:


Last time he mentioned it he said between demoss and Vines. I wonder if that's still the plan.

He knew about the NMSU contract before it was public.

So football has a grand plan to build out significantly more than they have now while basketball plans to downsize. As was mentioned before, only a few here remember the days when the Vines was the place to be for a game and we had quite a few games that really filled the seats. It is a shame that our program is moving in the right direction and our facility is going backwards...opposite of the trend in football.
