MacEwan Hall expansion has been delayed; again.

Construction of the long-awaited expansion building is slated to begin next month. Another setback pushed back the date of the ground breaking from September to October.

Students' Union plans for expansion have been ongoing since 1996 and have suffered numerous delays in that time.

It was hot. Those without hats or bottled water had only themselves to blame as they jostled for shade under the trees. Everyone on the hill next to the Stampeder's practice field last Saturday rapidly grew numb to the blazing heat (not to mention the slow creeping wedgie one gets from sitting on an incline), as the University of Calgary Dinosaurs football squad flexed their muscles against a slightly older, wiser alumni team.
