“This is every 8-year-old boy’s dream come true,” a New Mexico State University spokes­woman said Friday, Aug. 30, when she led an informal tour of a huge hole in the ground that is in the process of becoming the $15 million Pete V. Domenici Hall.

Deep in the hole, under what was once the Hershel Zohn Theatre, one bright yellow pow­er shovel sat parked, while another clung to a hillside above, also inside the theater space.

The former theater will be the second largest classroom on campus, with advanced technology made possible by a gift from Col­lege of Business alumnus Peyton Yates.
