    Crusaderfan anytime lands is rezoned it gets put in the newspaper and is made available for the public to see. GenX probably knows someone from the inside or is well informed and tipped him off that this was happening or he is constantly googleing Tennessee Temple due to the obsession he has with the school

    As Shultzie used to say, "Very Interesting..." I'm curious as to why Lovett is seeking rezoning of these properties. He is evidently functionng as a representative of the Board of Trustees. Perhaps, an effort is being made to sell the properties and such a move would make them more attractive to potential buyers. Who knows? I ceertainly would not expect the Trustees to post on FFF their business.

    BTW, take a look at the entire TTU website. The Hip Hop and Santa are all part of the moving ads, that pass before your vision. Check out the entire website and you will see it's not to shabby at all.

    Certainly times are hard at TTU, but I find all the negative blogging disconcerting. We need more level headed, positive effort to help turn the ship back on course.

    I try to take all the crap on for just what it is...crap!

    Behavioral Psychology 101


    Unfortunately, I'm not like most of the New Day. No, I never liked positive reinforcement in raising up whatever, for example, students get Fs. The professor and Academic Dean says, "good job; although you failed courses, you had to of learned something." They encourage students to keep going back and trying again the next semester. What do you get? You get more money from them, but end up bunch of lazy narcissistic kids that will end up under living under a bridge, going back home to sponge off their parents, or bailing to the Army and the like.

    Negative reinforcement gets better results, and I promise to continue posting stink about the school as it comes in.

    Negative reinforcement busted a plagiarizer forcing students to buy plagiarized books!

    Default Tennessee Temple University preps for dorm renovations

    This may answer some questions about his topic.

    http://www.timesfreepress.com/news/2...ovation/?local

    Tennessee Temple University cleared an administrative hurdle Monday, paving the way for expansion of the school's dorms.

    Portions of the 32-acre Highland Park campus were rezoned, allowing renovation of now-empty dorms to housing for faculty, older students and families. Instead of the typical bed, desk and shared bathroom, the dorms will function more like apartments, officials said

    But renovations are still a ways off, according to Eric Lovett, the school's chief operating officer.

    "The goal is to grow," he said. "We've got to get that growth going first."

    The university, which has tripled its enrollment on campus and online from 400 to 1,200 in the past three years, had been looking to sell its unused dorms. On-campus admission numbers have hovered around 300 for years, far below dorm capacity and the school's peak enrollment decades ago.

    Lovett said the school is no longer trying to sell the dorms and assured the Chattanooga-Hamilton County Regional Planning Agency that the rezoned buildings would be for school use only.

    Lovett said the school has upped its online enrollment but would like to see more students on its physical campus, particularly juniors, seniors and graduate students. If the school's recruitment efforts are successful, housing can be readily available.

    There have been yellow signs in front of the buildings for weeks. If you drive though the area it would be hard to miss.

    Thank you very much for sharing the information, Kevin. Nice to have a straight shooter on here to help us sort out all the misinformation and faulty opinions.

    Yellow signs as in rezoning?? So the plans are to gut the dorms and rebuild them on the inside to provide apt housing type deals for faculty and such?? How does the enrollment have to grow to have this to happen?? I dont see this happening if at all...just smoke and mirrors to me...everytime they have talked about expanding something on campus NOTHING gets done...so I wont believe in it until SOMETHING starts happening! Just like the gym expansion they talked about few yrs ago..when it was mentioned it sounded like they would start construction within a few months of the article written but MAYBE things are starting to change on that end..got a new floor this summer, lobby repainted again...just a start, but main thing is seating; i swear that gym is SO far out of code its not even funny..in 5 yrs that gym will be 50 yrs old!! Too bad Temple doesnt have the millions like most colleges like Lee have to build buildings every so often; if that were the case, Temple prob has a new state of the art basketball facility and upgraded athletic facilities like soccer and baseball...maybe even throw in a softball field somewhere on campus...that way all facilities are in one place and easy to get to..
