Being surrounded by construction for long periods of time is not an ideal situation for the average college student balancing school work, a social life and more. However, the students of ACU should view the construction of a new science and humanities building as an overall improvement to the university.
About 900 students are majoring in a science program at ACU, making the university’s science programs important to the academic atmosphere.
And with the recent addition of departments such as engineering and physics, more students interested in the scientific world are looking into ACU as their choice university.
With this growth of students must come a growth of facilities. Otherwise, the usefulness and benefit of the current building’s infrastructure would be surpassed. Which, if anyone has been in a lab in the Foster Science Building or ascended up the rickety stairwells lately, they could claim it already has.
While those currently enrolled in a scientific major, or any major for that fact, may not see direct benefits of the construction, the advancement of the university’s programs will have a great impact on their future.
Just as current students chose ACU as their home for its reputation and exceptional programs, this advancement in the science and humanities buildings would allow for even more innovative work. New labs containing state-of-the-art equipment would permit students and faculty to work together toward new discoveries and improvements in the scientific world.
Imagine, a team at ACU discovering another stage of matter or the cure for cancer, all because the university was able to make the most of the God-given talents of each student by supplying high-class facilities.
While those particular discoveries may or may not happen, the fact remains that great things come from inevitable beginnings, even if that means a few early mornings and loud jack hammers through the process.
So, to the students, be patient with your Dear Christian College. It is changing for you, for its future students and for the benefit of the world.
