Facing the problems of UM-St. Louis
Why is it that UM-St. Louis:
—Likes to demolish attractive, older buildings (i.e., Mt. Providence)?
—Continues to partially support a radio station which is not for student use (KWMU)?
—Is one of the few major St. Louis higher educational institutions without a presence in Downtown or Midtown St. Louis?
—Builds a new University Center with so much administrative and retail space?
—Hopes to encourage living on campus yet provides no weekend meal service?
—Wants to discourage driving from place-to-place on campus but has inconvenient shuttle service?
These are just a few questions that still trouble me. I admit every institution has problems. Overall, I like UMSL—but it certainly is not a perfect institution.
