Default Why the Commons Sucks

Earlier tonight at the Commons, I was accosted by a woman who worked for the cafeteria and several Public Safety officers for "intended theft"--I had put some food in a few small Ziploc containers. The PS officers went on to chastise me, saying that the rules regarding food transportation were "very clear" and that I might as well "just obey them." Frankly, the rules in the Commons are as capricious as they are invisible: one day you're allowed to take food out, the next it becomes a crime. I say that this is despotism, and PS officers should focus on more important issues than a kid taking macaroni out of the Commons in a baggie.

The worst part about the Commons is that you are literally FORCED to have a meal plan if you live on campus. There's a new 'meal exemption' form, but only for 'extreme medical conditions.' I know people who have tried to get off the meal plan with doctor's notes and what have you, but even then the administration refuses to waive the meal plan fee. It's ridiculous. I'd rather just buy my own groceries and make food. It'd be healthier and cheaper.
