In 2010, Harrisburg University was awarded $400,000 by the United States government for "curriculum development and for laboratory upgrades, including the purchase of equipment and technology." The bill was sponsored by Holden, Casey and Specter. 

So where is the money? The labs where just built in 2009. The chemistry and biotech labs are still equipped at a high school level. They have never been upgraded. There is no computer science or physics lab. So where did the money go? Tim Holden also managed to arrange for the University to receive $286,899.00 in 2008 for "instructional programs that may include equipment and technology." Where is that money?

That's almost $700,000 from the Federal government and HU still lacks college level laboratories and equipment?! Maybe the money went for the $1400 Dyson Airblade hand dryers in the bathrooms and $900 Herman Miller chairs?

  1. Didnt HU spend a few hundred K $ to move the new media lab into strawberry square? Then like two months later moved it back? what a retarded waste off money.
