Complaints need to be justified


I’m tired of reading letters to the editor where people complain about false things or things that are just stupid. So, on that note:

Cassie, apparently you didn’t realize that on WebAdvisor, the section that says ‘make a payment’ means that you can pay your bill online. Oh well, we’ll just chalk that one up to you being new here, even though I’m sure you used WebAdvisor to register for classes, so you should be familiar with it.

As far as the library is concerned, what do you want us to do: pick up the whole building and move it smack dab into the middle of campus so you can find it easier? How about we put a big neon sign over it that says “Library Here.” You know what, I got a better idea: just learn to read a map. It really is quite easy. So what if the library isn’t in the middle of campus? How many towns do you know of where the library is in the middle of the town? And did you SERIOUSLY expect printing to be free? Come on now!

As far as parking goes, buy yourself a cheap remote parking pass and park in the stadium parking lot. Or is that too much work to walk that far?

Now, how about Brian and his land formations. What do you want physical plant to do? Remove that snow and put it somewhere else? I suppose they could do that, but are you really willing to pay thousands of dollars to do that? I know I’m not. Instead, I have a better deal. Walk that extra few feet to the nearest sidewalk which physical plant does a decent job of keeping clear. I know that might sound like a lot of work, but I’m sure you’re capable of it.

Now I realize this campus is FAR from perfect, but if you’re going to complain about something, complain about something worthwhile.
