TO THE EDITOR:
The new restrictions on student usage of the Anne Queen Faculty Commons in the Campus Y is a gross example of faculty elitism and privilege.
As many students will soon learn, the UNC Office of Faculty Governance recently implemented a policy banning students from using the lounge between the hours of 8 a.m.to 5 p.m., unless escorted or invited by a faculty or staff member. This is, of course, ridiculous considering that the lounge is located directly next to the student-owned coffee shop The Meantime.
Let that sink in. We just banned students from using the room next to their own coffee shop.
Faculty can now enjoy students serving them coffee and then arrogantly strut into a closed room where the students who live, study and work on our campus are not permitted.
