It's a nice gesture, but really $2M for the new alumni center is a drop in the bucket of what it's going to cost. I saw the plans for the building, it is going to be massive. Which makes sense, considering all the other building projects the university has been putting together. They just finished a new Nursing school (and believe me, no one has ever needed a new building more than them) and they're putting together some additions to the School of Communications, which they actually just renovated a couple years ago. The alumni center itself is actually part of a larger overhaul planned for the Student Union building, which was already very big and very nice.
