Facebook Hank Kilgore printTCU is planning a new Interior Design and Merchandising building to provide students and professors with better resources and more space.The current building is located off-campus and is becoming overcrowded, students said. As of right now, plans would locate the new facility behind Moudy Building North.Junior fashion merchandising major Meredith Hudson said the building’s current location is inconvenient.“Being all the way by the police station is a real hassle,” Hudson said.Junior interior design major Brooke Wissenbach said the new building will make up for the current lack of resources and draw attention to the program.“I think it’s great that there are plans for a new building,” Wissenbach said. “Our current building is practically off-campus and doesn’t provide all the resources we need.”Not all students think a new building will bring in more first-year students, though some said a new building could provide a better experience for existing majors.“I don’t think being closer to campus will bring more people to the program,” Hudson said. “With the new building being on campus, however, students will be able to network better and it will allow students better access to campus resources.”Anne Helmreich, dean of the College of Fine Arts, said decision-makers are “still deep in planning meetings about the project.” There will be an official announcement sometime in the near future, she said.The new building will be useful to more than just interior design and fashion merchandising majors.Leo Munson, associate provost for academic support, said the new building will give the theatre department a place to store costume collections and construction equipment.Senior theatre major Dana Cassling said the new storage space would be a benefit.“We always need more storage,” Cassling said. “This would make it possible to have more of our stock closer and make it more accessible. It’ll just make student designers and props masters’ lives a little bit easier.” ReddIt TCU Sizzle Reel (Ep. 16 – Legion, Stranger Things 2 and more) TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Previous articleTCU bolsters lineup with Texas A&M transferNext articleSpecial Project: to protect and to serve Hank Kilgore RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR TCU VGP (Ep. 18 – The Cost of Gaming, State of DLC and more) TCU VGP (Ep. 19 – Xbox Game Pass, Horizon Impressions and more) Facebook Hank Kilgore TCU VGP (Ep. 17 – Valentine’s Updates, Overwatch and more) Linkedin The College of Science and Engineering Dean, Phil Hartman, retires after 40 consecutive years Linkedin Twitter TCU Frog Camps returning to more traditional look this summer Hank Kilgore ReddIt Hank Kilgore read more

Dana Rosemary Scallan’s statement in full on ‘despicable’ allegations

first_img Dana Rosemary Scallan’s statement in full on ‘despicable’ allegations 365 additional cases of Covid-19 in Republic By News Highland – October 14, 2011 Main Evening News, Sport and Obituaries Tuesday May 25th Twitter Man arrested on suspicion of drugs and criminal property offences in Derry 75 positive cases of Covid confirmed in North Previous articleDana to stay in presidential race despite allegations ‘of a sexual nature’Next articleTwo Letterkenny clubs take part in “EU Night Without Accident” initative News Highland Following an earlier TV appearance, Dana released the following statement:A most despicable and malicious campaign of hatred is currently being directed at myself and my family.I brought this into the public domain for the following reason; last week I was falsely accused of being a part of a deceptive cover-up regarding my Irish/ US dual citizenship, which I subsequently proved to be untrue on presentation of my  citizenship certificate. Before I produced the citizenship certificate, I received a malicious email which began ‘HAHAHAHAHAH – The bitch finally gets what she deserves’.  I will not repeat further details of the email which goes on to threaten the release of further malicious and untrue allegations  and also attempts to implicate me.Following on from this, prior to the Prime Time debate on Wednesday, a free-lance journalist contacted me claiming that he was going to run two page stories dealing with a malicious allegation against one of my family members and attempting to implicate me. I felt it best to confront this head on and after legal advice I made my statement in the Prime Time debate. I knew by the tone of the threatening email I had received that the writer was determined to ‘out’ this malicious accusation.  This false accusation first surfaced in a family dispute court case approx. 5 years ago and was denied. No further action was taken. It now conveniently surfaces again during my Presidential campaign. In fact in an alleged period of over 30 years there has never been a complaint lodged.I am appalled that person or persons would seek to do this to my family. I have never knowingly done harm to any person and while some may not agree with my political, religious or social positions on certain matters, no family deserves to be the subject of such a malicious campaign. My family and I have agreed that to walk away now from the Presidential campaign would be to give support to the orchestrated campaign that I believe is being peddled from a specific source and I will not let this happen.My sincere thanks to all those who have sent messages of support in these difficult times to myself and my family. I look forward to the next two weeks of campaigning and a Presidential result that will finally reflect the true will of the People.
