Thanks! Apparently they did not have an official groundbreaking ceremony. I was wondering if this would be postponed. I check News @ Northeastern daily and missed it. There has been no article about the construction, just the picture.
Nobody home at the PR office this barely-there semester? Wouldn't surprise me.I am amazed that there has been no mention of construction being underway in the Northeastern media aside from that single picture.

I'm shocked BU's Daily Free Press is still chugging along at full-tilt, but them always being indie detached from the University means they have leeway to chart their own way and student staffers there are more likely to be holding down other journo gig work on the side keeping them in-town while rest of campus is empty.
I think students would consider that rather insensitive, given the much larger issues and happenings going on around Northeastern right now involving Coronavirus. Northeastern patting themselves on the back for building a new expensive science building would get near universal backlash from students right now. Can confirm construction is still quietly progressing along though.News@Northeastern, their PR department, is grinding out stories, just not about EXP.
My guess is that in the next few years wealthy donors will make naming gifts for each building. The two buildings combined will be known as ISEComplex.This may or may not be a dumb question, but is EXP the final name? I know ISEC was originally ISEB, but both of those abbreviations at least had meaning. I've yet to hear from anyone what EXP stands for.
Looks like what I thought was previously them going vertical is not the case. I’m currently sitting in ISEC and watching (and hearing them, quite loudly, I might add) ram these steel beams into the ground. So much force from the equipment they’re using that it’s literally shaking the ground all the way up here from the sixth floor.
I think it’ll be hard to group the two buildings together into one ISEC. The student body by and large refers to the first building solely as ISEC. It’ll be very hard to remove that association, IMO. Sort of like a John Hancock/200 Clarendon or Willis/Sears Tower issue.My guess is that in the next few years wealthy donors will make naming gifts for each building.
