From The Baltimore Sun: Baltimore developer Edward St. John has donated $10 million to the University of Maryland, College Park to help pay for a new high-tech classroom building in the heart of campus. The proposed Edward St. John Teaching and Learning Center would offer 2,000 classroom seats and be used daily by one-third of the campus' undergraduates. It would address a serious shortage of modern classroom space on the state's flagship campus. For construction on the $63 million building to move forward, the General Assembly would have to approve almost $48 million in funding in the 2013 state budget. Gov. Martin O'Malley has included the center in his projected budget.
