Update Synopsis:

Taschereau University has been gaining a reputation as one of the best universities in SimNation. The number of students has been rapidly increasing year after year. The university has needed to expand for several years, and after a grant from the federal and provincial governments and a discount on the purchase of land from the Region of Taschereau, an expansion was announced. After several years of construction, it is completed, and we are going to go have a look. So, let's go!

48.1| This picture shows of TU's main campus several years before construction began. It was a small university, which has previously added one building in the 1990's. The university grew cramped as more students were accepted. after a certain point, they couldn't accept any more students as the university was already operating at 120% at any given point. The only solution, an aaddition. In a big way.

48.2 | And here is the new campus! It is greatly larger than the original campus. This campus, unlike the original campus, has student residences, lecture halls, shopping, sports fields and parking as part of one campus. The original buildings are still in use, in conjunction with the new campus.

48.3 | Here we see 2 of the buildings that house the Faculty of Business. It is one of the premeir business schools in the country, and is highly sough-after. Both Undergraduate and Graduate programs are offered.

48.4| Here we see 2 of the large lecture hall buildings. The majority of buildings were designed to be unique, to provide a better environment for students and create some interest in the area's landscape.

48.5 | Here is one of the student residence complexes. The residence buildings are mostly single-occupant rooms, with either shared common spaces or apartment suites. This complex surrounds sports fields, which provide stress-releif for over worked students. :)

48.6 | These buildings house more lecture halls, but also house smaller classrooms that are used for more intimate gatherings with students, professors and other faculty.

48.7 | This office building houses the majority of faculty offices, professor offices and student services offices. Administrative duties for the university are also handled here. Some faculty offices and general offices are still located on the old campus.

48.8 | This area houses more student residences. There are also some shopping options for students - and the public - inclusing a pharmacy, grocery store and video rental store.

48.9 | This is the university's concert hall. The orchestra is very well known and respected in the region and beyond. There are several concerts each year here put on the orchestra. Touring orchestras also play here, keeping the hall busy year-round.

45.10 | To finish off, a mosaic of the main portion of the new campus at night. Brightly lit, students are now burning the midnight oil trying to finish those papers that are soon due.
