The Rumor Mill

LATTE PROBLEMS IN BC The Bryan Center's freshly painted fluorescent concrete walls may soon house a new tenant: Starbucks. One top administrator says discussions are hot-and-heavy for the coffee shop to open in the space currently housing OSAF offices, which recently had large glass windows installed to give the building even the tiniest hint of life. Another person familiar with the discussions, though, says that with liberal faculty diametrically opposed to the corporation-to-end-all-corporations setting up shop on campus, a deal is a long way off. RM has a solution to make everyone happy: Anyone with a car, non-blue zone parking, six-figure salary and 16 weeks of vacation time a year can continue to trek to Ninth Street for a decent espresso, while everyone else can decide for themselves whether they want a cup of the world's most popular brew.

Walk the Line... RM would like to thank Dr. Larry Moneta for directing potential donors to his West Campus Plaza instead of more mundane projects such as financial aid or the renovation of decrepit building interiors. But are students taking advantage of the new, wide-open space, peacefully located above the Bryan Center loading bay and Great Hall dumpsters? A few glances at the plaza reveal the vast majority of students walking in straight lines from the main quadrangle to the student center's entrance or sitting outside of The Loop enjoying the sun. It's almost as if all the University needed was a walkway leading to the BC with a small patio adjacent to The Loop.
