    The 1960's cinder block interior astetic, the peeling veneer on the built in closets, the communal showers, the sketchy elevators, the toilet stalls with no doors, and getting penny locked in your room like the minimum security prison they seemed to be, all of that is now a piece of history. I lived in Nielson on the 7th and 3rd floors for 3 years in the late '80's and early '90's, and to a big extent, the communal nature that the big dorms were designed to facilitate with the big common rooms and lounges was pretty much done because every room had cable, and everyone had a car.

    I had a great time at Tech, and the experiences I had and people I met while I lived in Nielson were a huge part of it, but the dark rooms might as well have been "cells" compared to the new dorms that replaced them. Everything has a lifespan, and by 2005 and 2009, the Administration thought that those two dorms had lived out their usefulness. I have great memories of living there, but I wasn't sad to see them go. I am conflicted about Wyly Tower coming down though...

    I didn't mean to make anyone mad, just talking.

    LaTech Re: Demolition?

    Took a few minutes Monday to snap a few pictures in front of the 48-year-old Joe Aillet Stadium press box. It saw its last game Saturday when the Bulldogs defeated UTSA 63-35 for homecoming. Today was spent removing anything of worth from the press box. Asbestos removal begins tomorrow. Demolition of the structure begins in early December. This was the before pictures. We will take the after pictures next August when the beautiful new $18 million facility/renovations are completed. The pictures include Buddy Davis (1968), Keith Prince (1969), Tom Morris (1972), Dave Nitz (1973), Teddy Allen (1980), Scott Boatright (1986), Malcolm Butler (1992), Anna Claire Thomas (2010), Blake Bolin (2011), and Kane McGuire (2012). Years in parenthesis are the first year that individual began working in the old press box. After the pictures were taken, the SID crew went up to the 'box and removed all their gameday equipment and looked for any lost adverbs or adjectives or expletives that might have been left up there.

    I would think they are removing it before the wrecking ball is used to tear it down as it seems that any level of encapsulating would be breached when a 500 lbs. ball hits it.

    Won't be a ball, it will be mega scissors doing the task. It will be encapsulated and removed prior to the actual tear down.

    Basically baggied and disposed of at the nearest certified landfill who handles such debris
