Vintage 21 has a progressive facade, but a core that is detrimental to equality of the sexes & lacks the forward-thinking mentality needed for true love of self & others.
I've had an issue with the church's doctrine since a friend wanted to raise her hand and protest the lack of female leadership. Her husband stopped her. After expressing my concern over this episode, she stopped speaking to me. It's bothered me ever since.
NCSU has certainly shown their true colors, and they're not red, white, and black; they're gold and greenbacks. If anyone can put a price on a priceless resource, it's the current administration. Apparently a couple of members of the Board of Trustees have a direct interest in the hog farming industry. The non-imported corn will provide a cheaper form of sustenance for their hogs. More power to you, guys. You know how to win at the expense of the students, faculty, and public every time. Because this isn't about what's best for the university; it's about what's best for you and what will add the most to your bank accounts.
The spin tossed out by the university is a prime example of greenwashing. there is nothing sustainable about building on forest-land when there was a residence already existing. The new residence can now ignore the fact that it is there on behalf of the university as it is far removed from student life. Now the university is renovating the old chancellor's residence for other university purposes, purportedly a Design School Museum.
To the person who mentions other parkland that we should visit instead of Lake Raleigh: that is no excuse to ignore this particular area and an administration that turns a deaf ear on the the students, faculty & community who desire its preservation.
