I’m glad that the Atrium is done. I’m glad that I get to see it and use it. Despite this, I’m still not happy.
I’m not happy because I still keep hearing students who obviously paid no attention to our coverage of the construction saying that they can’t believe that the school would spend money on the Atrium when there are so many other problems.
I mean I understand that students are unhappy about things; that’s the very reason I’m writing this. But seriously, if you see something you don’t like, why don’t you take the time to gather information about it? That’s the biggest problem on campus right now: the apathy of the student body. A handful of students control evertyhing (i.e. the Student Association) and the rest just complain about it.
This is very clearly evident in regards to on-campus concerts. Students say they want them and then no one goes because they don’t like the acts even though THEY COULD HAVE JOINED THE COMMITTEE THAT CHOSE THEM.
So please, do me a favor. Take some time to get informed.
