14. Observatory Improvements
The campus plan drawings do not extend to the location of the existing Observatory to the south and west of the core campus. Physics faculty expressed the need for supplemental space for the Observatory in the form of a small classroom or meeting space and storage rooms. Provision of additional space there would make the facility a more functional instructional space for classes, as there is now insufficient space to hold sessions for even small groups, and the idea of staging instructional sessions at Gilmer before moving to the Observatory is logistically difficult. A small expansion of 700 GSF is carried in the plan.
