Budget suggestions: October 18, 2013


The new performing arts center has the potential to be a revenue generator for the University, similar to the way the Smith Center generates revenue. This facility will serve outside groups as a rental facility, bring more people to campus to see performances, and help to establish SRU as a regional cultural center. A facility of this kind is currently found only in the Pittsburgh area. Therefore, the potential for revenue generation through this state-of-the-art facility is great.


Before contracting work out, consider having students do the project. For example, instead of SRU's Office of University Public Relations contracting with 7linemedia to take pictures and videos of campus, you should have had a photo/video contest among the students. And there are students in the computer science department that have programmed drone quadracopters to take pictures and videos. You would have saved plenty of money.
