Capital Planning


Being a capital planner and building designer is a very respectful but also responsible job, especially if you work for a University. From the presentation I learned many things, following are some of the most important ones.  Recognition: After the project is done, they are the ones that are going to be recognized which is a great reward after all the work they put in. We can say that they put their personal stamp on the building forever. Paycheck: They are getting paid a good salary for what they do, which could also be considered as a reward. Career Development: Reward being at the position that they are right now and participating in big projects helps them to develop their careers.

Some of the challenges that Mr. Waddle and his colleges face on their job are: Responsibility: From the presentation that Mr. Waddle and his colleges gave to our class it was obvious that their job is highly responsible. Being responsible for taking over a project like Wolf center is something that keeps them concentrated and working hard to accomplish all the goals set at the beginning. Communication: From their presentation I learned that they have to communicate with a lot of different people and that can be a big challenge sometimes. Also one more thing that I got out of the presentation is that funding and budgeting are crucial for every project you do on this job. Mr. Waddle talked about the difference between two projects, Wolf center and Stroh center where one of them (Wolf Center) is funded by the state which makes it much more complicated and harder for them to deal with.

The other part of this reflection is about our University’s  progress in capital planning and also how it is compared to other educational institutions throughout the country. Bowling Green has started couple of big projects in order to shake up a little bit and attract new students. There are three major projects that are under construction which are – Wolf Center, Stroh Center and new dorms that are built on campus. These new buildings will give a new, better and improved look to Bowling Green State University’s campus and we all hope that the money spent (around $70 million for Stroh and Wolf Center only) will be worth it.

The first article that I found is about Buffalo State University and its capital planning projects on campus. According to the article, Buffalo State University’s capital projects will result in nearly $350 million spent for new projects and renovations. Major projects are: new student housing, student union quad, science and mathematics complex and technology building. Comparing these projects to Bowling Green we can say that they are investing more funds into their projects.  The link for the article is provided bellow.


One more interesting article that I found and that I think is similar to our university is about Duquesne University building a new residence hall on campus. Their reason is also growing on-campus housing needs. Also as Mr. Waddle was talking about the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), Duquesne University new building will be constructed to earn this type of certificate.

    Hi Dusko: Well done! Do you know that your posts are categorized with soccer? Maybe it is intentional? I also suggest removing the “uncategorized” category.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

Welcome to Dusko’s Blog. My name is Dusko Topolic and I am a tourism major at Bowling Green State University. I am coming from a small country named Serbia, that is located in south eastern part of Europe as you can see in this picture bellow.



This Blog that I created is mainly for class purpose – TLEP 4830, and it has all different projects that we were asked to do. However this blog has some other information. I also played soccer for four years for BGSU and here is the short video of one of our games.
