nday, Nov. 28, to Friday, Dec. 2, the consultants will meet with various campus groups and community members to gather information and feedback about the master plan from interested parties.

Consultants will meet with representatives of the Associated Students of NMSU at 4 p.m. Nov. 28. All students are welcome to attend.

An evening meeting with interested community members will take place at 7 p.m. Nov. 29. All interested faculty, staff, students and neighbors are invited.

Both meetings will be in the student TV lounge area

Several other meetings that will include input and feedback from NMSU's two-year campuses are scheduled through the spring semester of 2006.

Consultants for the project are Studio D Architects in Las Cruces and their partner firm, Hanbury Evans Wright Vlattas and Co., who have offices in Tampa, Fla., and Norfolk, Va. Also, consultants in landscape architecture, transportation and infrastructural engineering will be involved.

Michael Rickenbaker, university architect and director of NMSU's facilities planning and construction department, is coordinating the workshops. He stressed that input from the entire university community including faculty, staff, students, neighbors and friends, is vital to the project.
