Sid Richardson College Master Search Committee member Morgan McNeel said the committee was still searching for new masters.

"A pair of candidates decided that the timing wasn't right for them, so as a result, we will continue the search until we find the perfect fit for Sid," McNeel said in an email sent out to Sid Richardson students.



Director of Facilities and Maintenance Services Doug Wells said the construction on the sidewalk outside Anderson Hall is a result of a broken sewer line uncovered when Facilities Engineering and Planning removed part of the sidewalk for repairs over winter break.

"After finding this [problem], we had no choice but to dig up and repair the entire length of broken sewer line," Wells said.

Wells said the line is now repaired and the work on the sidewalk should be complete within a few days, after which FE&P will relandscape the area.
