The Division of Student Affairs is not effectively targeting students with its latest project:

An outdoor challenge course.This spring, the Department of Recreation Services will begin constructing an outdoor challenge course, equipped with rope team-building elements and a dual zip line, on South Campus. The project will also include an outdoor education center to house workshops focused on the benefits of outdoor education. It is expected to be completed by fall 2013.
The Division of Student Affairs is funding the course construction internally. But with an indoor ropes course already located in Flanagan Gymnasium since August 2011, this use of university time, attention and monetary resources could be put to better use.Though a ropes course provides an entertaining service for the community, it is not a necessity at SU and does not cater to the needs of college students. The university administration should allot more resources toward solving campus’ evident problems rather than adding luxuries.
