It is better that one building should perish than an entire campus be led astray.

Sorry to hear that it is the Ballard Building and not the Jacob Hamblin Building that is being demolished. We spent our two weeks in the JHB a year ago, and it was awful. Smelly, run down, plumbing problems that could not be fixed during our stay. I had hoped that the lack of attention was because the new construction was replacing it soon, not just being added to it!

We wondered when we were there if they were preparing us for our third world missionary assignment... The sewer was leaking somewhere close to that building and smelled awful each morning as we left and began our day. We will remember the entire MTC experience with some fondness. Just one of the funny things that happened to us along the path to Peru.

With the push to only accept anorexic missionaries there should be way more room at the MTC. They can stick 8 skinny missionaries where they used to house 4 regular sized, and less righteous missionaries.

What an exciting announcement! I can't wait to see the new building! I suspect they'll replace the Jacob Hamblin Building at a later date. There was probably a greater need for the Ballard Building to be replaced.

They could name it the Helen Kimball building.

Huh?

It would be interesting to know how many of this building's alumni will be sorry that their children won't get their rite of passage in the same building that they attended and frequented.

I visited the building a few times when my friend directed its bookstore. I thought the building had all the comforts and charms of the tomb. I hope that the new building has more aesthetic appeal.
