Texas Universities Have Outgrown Their Walls

Efforts at Closing the Gaps succeeded – enrollments have ballooned.  New academic programs have been approved.  Larger class sizes can’t squeeze into 1970’s-style rooms.  Lab configurations couldn’t have been conceived for today’s science experiments and research.

Lots of Guns on Campus – Senate Begins Budget Review

Within days, the Baylor Student Senate endorsed a change to the state statute to permit guns on campus, a Purdue student was sentenced to 65 years in prison for murdering another student in a classroom, and a TSTC student shot and killed himself in his campus dorm.  TACT will continue to lobby, as it has successfully for years, against any change to the status quo which would make more guns on campus legal.
