Construction delays keep buses parked
Apartment project pushed back to 2006
Perrotti’s Pizza reached an agreement with developers to move into the new complex.

Construction on a student apartment and retail complex on a commuter parking lot near Berry Street has been delayed until December so developers will have time to complete the entire development at once, officials said.

Phoenix Property Co., who will be in charge of construction on the new structures, didn’t want to open the property in the middle of the school year for fear that the apartments would be left vacant.

TRAC shuttle system faces delay, will start in August
Three new parking lots will be built over the summer to help alleviate traffic headaches.

The construction delay of a new apartment complex near Perrotti’s Pizza has created a bottleneck that will cause the debut of a parking shuttle to be late and hurt Five Star Coaches financially, a company official said.

Five Star Coaches purchased five buses for $300,000 to use on the TRAC shuttle system, said Harry Noble III, the company’s operations manager.
Nursing students will train on-site
Nursing anesthesia graduate students can train at large hospitals thanks to recent TCU affiliations with clinical sites around the country.

The TCU Harris School of Nursing has added the Sacred Heart Health System to its growing list of affiliated hospitals which will serve as clinical training sites for the first batch of graduate students aiming for a nurse anesthetists certification.

The CRNA program requires students to train on- site at a hospital for 16 months. Training sites are vital and TCU has found affiliations with ease, said Kay Sanders, director of the School of Nurse Anesthesia.
Choreographer ends stay with performance
Internationally known choreographer, Miguel Mancillas, has been teaching the dance department for the last two weeks.

Miguel Mancillas, the Cecil H. and Ida Green Honors Chair for the ballet and modern dance department, ended his two week residency at TCU Thursday night with a performance of a selection of his works by the dance department.

“It’s beautiful to see the transformations in students and to see where they are,” Mancillas said. “With dance, I can learn about myself and dive into this huge world, which is scary to do.”
