In a time of national crisis, we college students have few things to look forward to. There’s the looming national debt, few promising job opportunities and the potential for new war around every corner, just to name a few. It is in these difficult times we must turn to each other for comfort, which prompts the question…what’s the deal with closing TC Lounge, Tom?
It’s like you’re begging us to hate you. What are we going to do without a place to go at 11 pm on weeknights when all we want is to eat a Tiger Brownie and wash it down with an Italian Soda? Where are post-final exam Film A&A students going to go as they break down and cry over their ruined film careers? Not that I’m speaking from experience or anything…
But come on man. TC Lounge is awesome, and I know I’m speaking for many of my fellow students when I say it’s a total buzzkill for you to close it for more offices. I know that finding space for things is an issue at this school, considering we can’t even supply real dorm rooms for all incoming students, but is there really nowhere else these new offices can fit? How about Smiddy? Do we really need those classrooms? No one has the time to walk there for a freshman seminar anyway. Can I get an “Amen”?
Besides that, you have to admit that view is clutch. Open mic night overlooking the entire city of Ithaca (including our colorful college disco stick in all it’s erectile glory) is pretty sweet.
Anyway, we know you’re super pumped to screw over all those PT majors, but do you have to take away one of the best places they can go on campus to cry about wasting two years worth of tuition?
