Comments: I am a student at Holy Cross, and I think it is nonsense that the only thing holding us up is not being able to tear down the church. To be honest, has anyone seen the church, it is in terrible condition, and if they do not let us tear it down,the church will just rot. We have been told we were going to be in a new building by this year and everything was going good but then this church thing happens. Has anyone noticed most people from out of state are against it ? What say do they have in it, I have talked to so many residents from the area that are happy to see somthing being done on the land. When your walking through the mall wearing a Holy Cross shirt, and someone stops you and tells you that they are so delighted that Holy Cross will be going to the new campus because they live in the area, it makes you feel good.The people that live in the neighborhood will become part of the Holy Cross family. They will embrace us and help to make the school survive in its new home.

I have a question for everyone, would you rather live next to a old broken church or a prospering school ? Take it into consideration.

From a future Tiger alumni I think they should tear down the church !!!!!
