Maarika K Vercamer: “Too bad they can’t use those donations and fundraiser funds to build something we don’t already have, like a performing arts center.”

Jennifer Weir: “I am so sick of the athletics department getting funding to look pretty. Let[‘s] start putting some money into updating the facilities and equipment that everyone else uses and needs.”

Jennifer Gottschalk: “The money that will eventually help build the IPF will not take away from academics, people. It will be money that alumni and others — whoever wants to — will be choosing to donate to the athletic department or to the IPF renovation, and that’s their prerogative.”
