Another water line break? Is it just me, or is this campus falling apart?

Been gone 7 years and they still haven't fixed the water issues?

hey babe... they're different water issues now. the pipes are at the end of their life. and to change them is going to mean major financial issues and digging up all of campus. it will be done but i think we're all just going to have to be patient until it's all resolved. i know physical plant is busting their butts trying to come up with a cost-effective and reasonable solution.

i work as a staff member at VU (graduated '97) and what i have found out is that the hot water pipes were all installed about the same time 30 years ago. and 30 years is the average life of the types of pipes installed. they are looking into alternative methods of providing heat to buildings, but it won't be an overnight process. i know it's frustrating, but trust me... the administration and staff are just as frustrated as the students. hang in there, at least most of you will be heading home for the holidays soon, and will have a nice 3 week break from campus! (breaks at VU do not mean a break for employees. oh well.)

Ack! No break for employees...doesn't sound fun. The water pipe breaks haven't been that frustrating, just seemed like they were happening a lot lately. Fortunately the Union pipe break didn't affect Guild-Memorial. :)

we get a few days off for holidays, but otherwise the university has to keep plugging. bills still need to be paid, fundraising continues, all that good stuff. :)

I'm also just a cranky senior. I'm sure after graduation I'll miss this campus more than I thought I would.
