Corner of NDSU's Minard Hall must be demolished
GRAND FORKS - The northwest corner of Minard Hall will need to be demolished, North Dakota State University President Dick Hanson said today.
Soil samples indicate the corner that collapsed Dec. 27 cannot be saved.
"They're very bad," Hanson said today prior to a meeting of the state Board of Higher Education. "That corner is going to have to go."
The soil samples for the northeast portion of Minard indicate it is stable, he said.
