"Focus on the Augusta-Waterville Region" piece on Thomas College in Waterville, which under president George Spann hopes to ensure financial stability by increasing enrollment from around 600 to about 1,000, in part by upgrading its sub-par recreational facilities. Former Dexter Shoe president Harold Alfond is offering a $1.25 million challenge grant for construction of the Harold Alfond Field House. Also planned is a new residence hall, classroom facility, and library. Although demographic trends indicate a decrease in the number of Maine high school graduates in the coming decade, New England is seen as a ripe market for the college. One of its most popular majors is sports management. Colby College in Waterville is planning the Colby Green Project to develop three new academic buildings. Details.
