We wholeheartedly support your choice, and welcome you as official EMU President. The first female to hold that title at Eastern Michigan University. Congratulations!!
Now, sell Samuel Kirkpatrick's folly house, for the good of the University and the community goodwill it would render. It'll fetch something that could help offset student costs. No, it's not NEEDED, and in these tight economic times, every penny counts.
We'll find you a smaller, cozier, and less expensive (and some would say less tainted) place to live.
