Pavilion Expansion– Nate Langstraat, Interim VP for Administrative Services, gave a presentation, saying that given the colleges current financial position, they would be unable to directly finance the expansion project. He suggested the alternative would be to borrow $11 million dollars from the state and pay it back over the course of 20 years.  There will be further discussion about how to fund the project, possibly by adding on around 6 or 7 dollars per credit onto tuition.
