Why do we have so many fountains on campus that are hardly ever in use? The only time I see the fountains on is during the summer, around the time of freshman orientation. I would like to think that the fountains are not just there to hook potential students. I know we were in a drought a few years ago, but we’re not anymore. Turn the fountains on. When they are off, it makes our school look cheap, which I know is not the case. With a brand new Health Center in operation and a new Student Center nearing completion, I would hope that someone in the administration could give the go-ahead to let the fountains flow freely, if only to complete the beautiful picture that VSU is trying to relay. Even VSU’s Wikipedia page lacks a photo of the main fountain flowing. Fountains aren’t built to hold rain water. They’re supposed to be pretty. Instead all we have are small pools of stagnant water.
I would like to thank the staff at Chick-Fil-A over by the University Center for being so prompt and ready in anticipation of the lunch rush. Near the beginning of the semester, I would be one in a sea of about a dozen people waiting for a single box of nuggets to appear on the counter. Then there was that awkward process of deciding who gets what in what order. Now when I get there I hardly ever have to wait. I just grab my nuggets and sandwich, walk over to the cashier, pay, and then I’m good to go. I’m glad things in the kitchen have been streamlined. Good job Chick-Fil-A!
